SIBA Monthly Meeting & Newsletter

August 19, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Don Burkart will lead a discussion on honeybee behaviors at our August SIBA meeting. This will be an open discussion where all members are encouraged to share their experiences. Behaviors like aggressive, calm, defensive, hygienic, robbing, bearding, and others will be discussed.

What causes honeybees to exhibit certain behaviors? Can those behaviors be changed? How should a beekeeper prepare for and react to certain behaviors? Are all behaviors due to heredity? Are behaviors a response to a specific stimulus?

Don is a third year beekeeper with 17 hives, and is also the SIBA Librarian.

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 6:30pm 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!
