    Member Mark Eckman asked about electronic record keeping for beekeepers at the last meeting.  Here is the link to a free recordkeeping system that is pretty easy to use.  https://www.hivetracks.com

  • Honey Flow

    Date: 2013.04.09 | Category: Uncategorized | Response: 0

    Here in the Chattahoochee Valley, things are beginning to bloom… a little late, but Spring has finally sprung.  That means that you should check your hives and add supers as needed.  Don’t miss the honey flow, and don’t let the hive get overcrowded or they are likely to swarm and you will loose bees.
