Members and Friends, please join us again in June for a special Membership Meeting by Webinar.  The meeting will feature Clarence Collison presenting “Colony Management For Maximum Honey Production“!

Honey production is dependent on having large colony populations coinciding with local honey flows.  Management practices must be aimed toward fully utilizing the reproductive capacity of the colony and managing the swarming impulse.  There is a basic relationship between brood/adult populations that determines the rate of colony development.

Clarence H. Collison is an Emeritus Professor of Entomology and Emeritus Head of the Department of Entomology and Plant Pathology at Mississippi State University. Throughout his career he has taught beekeeping, trained graduate students, written numerous beekeeping publications and participated in many educational programs for the beekeeping community. He writes the monthly column “A Closer Look” and prior to that “Do You Know?” for Bee Culture and has published two books.

Clarence’s presentation will be followed by our TRB Q&A Panel, where you can ask ANYTHING about Beekeeping and get the advice you need.

Monday June 15th from 6:30 pm to 9 pm (CST) – please note the earlier start to the meeting.
