Main Program: “Debunking Common Myths about Beekeeping”
The internet is an increasingly popular way to learn about beekeeping, ask questions, and share one’s experiences. Reading about beekeeping on Facebook and other internet sites, as well as watching youtube videos can be entertaining, but all too often the information there is downright wrong. Errors, myths, and even lies have proliferated in recent years as more and more beekeepers have given in to the temptation to turn to the internet to share their “wisdom,” which is often based on little real experience. At this month’s meeting, Will and Monica will debunk some common myths about beekeeping, such as
Beekeepers are bad for bees
Using metallic spoons in honey is dangerous
Feeding sugar syrup to colonies causes honey to crystalize
There is always only one queen per hive
A beekeeper can always keep hives from swarming
Please join us and bring your own question or myths to share.
Other items on the agenda
State of the hive
What is going on in the beeyard this month
Raffle of beekeeping tools for those attending in person
