WHAT'S BUZZING:

 

ANNUAL BEEKEEPING CONFERENCE 2017
Chester County Beekeepers Association is pleased to announce our
Annual Beekeeping Conference 2017

to be held on March11th, 2017 at the Merion Schmucker Science Bldg.
on the Campus of West Chester University in West Chester, PA

This year, we are hosting a truly superb key note speaker lineup. This fine group includes, Dr. Dewey Caron, Dr. Meghan Milbrath, Phil Kraft, and Landi Simone.

The upcoming conference will also introduce a new lecture format. Rather than the previous Beginner and Advanced Group division, we will be offering a third group Intermediate Level Beekeepers. This change was made in order to present a more efficient, a more targeted learning experience. Expanding beyond informative lectures, the conference will be heavily biased towards hands on beekeeping skills.

Meghan, Phil, and Landi are each running active bee operations. They are coping with the same challenges many of us are experiencing. This leads to the logical question – which group should I sign up for? We will offer some guidelines.

The Beginners Level Group – This group is for the true beginner and folks with one to two years’ experience, who might be struggling with the craft. If one has taken a beekeeping course and yet senses gaps in their basic management skills or simply cannot get their program off to a successful start – this is the place to be. In addition to basic skills, some intermediate level material will be introduced. Our goal is to provide a solid beekeeping foundation and to increase your chances of a successful beekeeping season.

The Intermediate Level Group -- Realizing maximum benefit from this program will require a solid foundation in basic beekeeping skills. The basics of beekeeping will not be covered, rather we will move directly into more advanced colony management topics. Here we begin to move away from an arbitrary decision making process and begin to read a colony, understanding what messages our inspection observations are conveying. At this level, we begin to expect a surplus from our colonies – product marketing will be introduced. The principles of queen rearing will be covered. And of course Varroa mites -- Where do we stand?

The Advanced Level Group --- Bees, Bees, Bees, - I have too many bees. Honey, honey,
honey – What will I do with all of this honey? Pollen, wax products – I really need to
improve my bottom line.

Raising a few queens is not good enough – I need quality queens! I need to work more efficiently – the labor requirements are getting out of hand. Varroa mites, hive beetles – the war goes on.

A quality dining room lunch is included in the admission fee.
