Bee Improvement & Queen Rearing Group – Wednesday 2nd May: 7.30pm at Kenn

Come and find out we have done and what we intend to do in future

Four years ago, a small group of us started to meet together to look at how we might make the most of our queen cells and how we might rear queens. This, we felt, would give us greater control and understanding of our colonies and what we might do to improve our bees.
We tried out a number of approaches, using, for example, mini-nucs and incubators. There were successes and failures but we did build up our confidence and understanding of what might be achieved with a little innovation and creative management of our queens.
A year ago we changed focus from Queen Rearing to Bee Improvement realizing that by working together we might improve not only our own colonies but possibly the quality of bees in our area.
On Wednesday 2nd May at 7.30pm we are presenting an evening at Kenn Village Hall where we will bring you up to date with what we have been doing and what we have learnt over the past couple of years. More importantly we will be suggesting what we might all do practically within the branch to work towards improving our bees. (Local bees for local beekeepers!)
This will give us the opportunity to develop the work the group are doing and encourage you to consider how you might contribute and benefit.
Whether you are are merely curious or keen to rear your own queens to improve your bees, come along to Kenn Village Hall on Wednesday May 2nd at 7.30pm to find out more.
