SIBA Monthly Meeting & Newsletter

September 16, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

For September, Don Burkart will be wrapping up the round-table discussion started in August covering the behavior topics that were not addressed in the last meeting. Specifically, we will cover behavioral traits;

  • Bearding
  • Washboarding
  • Swarming
  • Floral Fidelity

We'll also discuss club member-submitted traits;

  • Flight training
  • Sound
  • Undertaker
  • Scenting
  • Color triggers
  • Fanning

It was a great discussion in August... so much, that we needed more time to finish it up. Everyone had some great input and we look forward to completing this conversation! We're also hoping at the end of the discussion, we have some people who can speak to genetics... and some of what our local queen breeders are bringing to the table in our area. SE Indiana is one the most capable beekeeping communities in the state!


If you've missed a previous newsletter, find them all archived here.

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!
