Join the Wake County Beekeepers Association on Tuesday, March 14, 2017 for our monthly meeting at the Wake County Commons Building, 4011 Carya Drive, Raleigh. Ben Crawley and a special guest will discuss how to “shake a package” (install it) and what to do with a swarm. There will be a hands-on portion at this meeting. Ben will bring a bee vacuum and show everyone how to make a bucket on a pole, along with a parts list so you can make your own. (Find out why you need a bucket on a pole!) The gathering begins at 7 pm and the meeting starts at 7:30. Come and bring a friend.
The first hands-on in the bee yard, scheduled for March 19, has been postponed to March 26, due to the cold weather.
