General Meeting @ Montgomery County 4-H Center
Sep 26 @ 7:00 pm
Beekeeping is often defined as applied bee biology, learning what and how bees do what they do and then using this knowledge to improve harvest or pollination potential and or enjoyment of bee culture. Dr. Deborah Delaney, professor in the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware, will deliver a detailed presentation on Honey Bee Biology so that you can understand and utilize this information. She has over 20 years of experience working with pollinators, (specifically honey bees) and maintains between 50- 100 colonies in  Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. Anyone who has heard her speak will testify that her presentations are informative, understandable and entertaining.
Additionally, association member Vincent Rinchiuso will discuss beekeeper liability insurance options and coverage.
