Splits and Swarms Workshop This Weekend

If you haven’t already signed up for this Saturday’s workshop on making splits and managing swarms, we have 6 spots left!! Visit our Events page for contact information. This is a FREE EDUCATIONAL EVENT, so please don’t pass up the opportunity to learn from expert beekeeper and head of MSU’s honey bee research program, Dr. Jeff Harris. Bring your bee working gear (if you have it).  Lunch will be on your own.

In Search of a New Apiary Location

Starkville area landowners… we need your help!

We are having to relocate approximately 25 of our research colonies and we are needing a suitable space to put them within 15 miles of Starkville.  We manage our colonies frequently during the warm months, so a location that is readily accessible is preferred. Also, because these bees are being used for research purposes, we must keep them in a location that is protected from pesticide spraying .

If anyone can help us out, please contact me at (662) 325-2975, comment on this post, or email me at: as526@msstate.edu.
