General Meeting @ Montgomery County 4-H Center
Oct 25 @ 7:00 pm

This evening, Jim Bobb will present on his travels and adventures to Nairobi where he learned and observed how African Honey bees are managed. Jim participated in a tour organized by MaryAnn Frazier who has been visiting and  gathering information on this topic over the years. Do African bee species manage varroa with less destruction and, if so, why is this possible?

Also, Paul Snellen, president of Lehigh Valley Beekeepers Association will show and tell on his efforts to promote propolis deposits on the inside of honey bee wooden ware. How do you do this and does it work ? Learn from Paul’s four years of experimenting with this important honey bee resource.
