April Meeting

Monday, April 7, 2014 - 7:00pm

The SJC Beekeepers Association welcomes Jeanette Klopchin as our speaker for the April 7th meeting. 

Caste Development and the Theory of Queen Rearing will be her topic.  Understanding development in each caste of the honeybees will help beekeepers understand their hives, what the hive is doing and when.  The basic biology behind queen development is essential to begin queen rearing. 

New swarm at Bob's house

My wife Jane drove onto the back driveway and entered into approximately 10,000 bees that were swarming in the air next to the big cedar tree!

I went out to look and saw that they had just started to swarm and were starting to congregate on one of the cedar branched about 15 feet up, and soon became a blob of about 3 pounds.

Bo arrived with Eustace and as I had already set up a 12 foot ladder,  it was fast work to get them into a bucket and forgo the use of the vaccum.
