Bob Ketch captured video of Russian bees that invaded the wall of an old house…
WOW! Look what he sees!
If my memory serves me correectly I have heard that Maple buds ususally begin to appear in mid to late February, Bob Ketch spotted this just north of Athens .. Granted he is likely several hundred feet lower than us, so I ask, is this a sign of an early start?
( I am not sure what angle this was taken at but there are Maple buds!)
Happy New Year everyone! I hope your holiday season was extra special! Was there a bee related present under your tree?
Our January meeting is only one short week away. Our speaker this month is Mr. Jay Parsons. He is sharing his knowledge of section comb … the comb in the square basswood boxes. Another notch in your honey repertoire if you choose. I look forward to his presentation.
Other business we have to take care of is electing a new treasurer, getting volunteers for our bee school and also the new mentoring program. It’ll be a full meeting and I hope to see seats full!
