SIBA Monthly Meeting – Swarm Trapping
April 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Who doesn't want FREE BEES? Duane Bischoff will be leading the timely topic of swarms and swarm catching. He'll cover building a swarm trap (the different types of boxes and materials that are used), and answer the questions of how, where and when to hang them. Once you've caught a swarm, then what? How do you get it home and into a deep hive box to start growing your apiary? Bee scions will also be discussed as an option to try and catch swarms from your own apiary because sooner or later, your bees are going to swarm. Scions and swarm traps help catch both your own bees, and other swarms. Join us in April at the Sunman American Legion and bring your questions!
SIBA Meetings occur the 3rd Thursday of each month through the year with topics being added to the event ahead of each meeting. Meetings are held at the Sunman American Legion unless otherwise stated ahead of time in the newsletter and website. We're also looking for volunteers to help make the club GO. Contact us to let us know you are interested in helping out!
