    “Using Nucs in your Beekeeping Operation”

    Dr. Jamie Ellis (via Zoom) 

    Dr. Jamie Ellis, is the Gahan Endowed Professor of Entomology in the Department of Entomology and Nematology at the University of Florida where he has responsibilities in extension, instruction and research related to honey bees. He has written widely on many topics as a result of his research, and you may have read one of his articles in American Bee Journal.

    He will present via Zoom,  “Using Nucs in your Beekeeping Operation.” “Nucs” are small honey bee colonies housed in small hives. Consequently, their importance in beekeeping is often overlooked. Dr Ellis will describe how nucs can become an indispensable tool in one’s beekeeping operation.

     “Lotions, Butters, Salves and Lip Treatments”

    Rachel Newby (live)

    What to do with all your extra beeswax?

    One way to get more out of your beekeeping investment is creating body products, full of protecting beeswax, for yourself and your family. Rachel will talk you through the basics, including rendering beeswax, basic equipment and ingredients, and the benefits some ingredients have for your skin.

    Rachel Newby is a third-generation beekeeper (her grandmother was a member of MCBA) and has been keeping bees for eight years. She is the owner of New-Bee Ranch, LLC, a small farmette in western Montgomery County that provides small-batch seasonal foods in addition to honey and beeswax products.
