chris asked me what sort of topic we would like- here are some choices- keeping your bees alive ( always a good one), managing your bees, northern stock bees, mite control, or if you have something in mind send me an email and ill ask. we will go with what the majority wants.
i havent had any responses from members as to setting up a directory. if anyone is interested email me your info.

A big thank you to the people who made our 1st meeting of 2016 a success!!! Happy to see so many people interested in helping bees. Our power point presentation will be up and running next week. Next meeting- Feb 11th 2016, 6:30pm meeting at the abington community library in clarks summit, pa. winter project--- want to build a nuc??? fyi- they will outgrow this quickly and u will need a regular hive body. but it can be used to make a split or as a swarm trap. http://cookevillebeekeepers.com/04/easy-to-build-honey-bee-nucleus-hive Stay warm- Renee
The Lackawanna Backyard Beekeepers will meet on Thursday, June 19th, 6:30pm, at the Abington Community Library. We
will open with roundtable discussion and then show a Brushy Mountain
training video titled "Requeening and Colony Division." We have a number
of beeks now scrambling for queens. A lot of breeders are sold out now,
so it's hit and miss on acquiring one the easy way, but we will strive
to have some supplier info on hand as well.
