SWARM COLLECTION LIST


Bibb County Swarm

ATTENTION NON BEEKEEPERS

If you look out your window and see a huge cloud of honeybees settling on a limb or other structure near your home or find a "cluster" of bees hanging from a tree or other structure on your property we have many bee keepers who will be glad to come out and try to catch the swarm and relocate them.  Please do not call an exterminator or spray the swarm with an insecticide unless it is a last resort.

Mission Statement:  Bibb County Bee Keepers Association is an organization whose purpose is to promote, educate and assist individuals, community and the environment as it relates to beekeeping.  We provide an informational and social platform for beekeepers of any experience level.  Bibb County Bee Keepers promote healthy beekeeping practices and management while offering education, encouragement and mentoring to anyone who wishes to be involved with honeybees.

Note from the President:

The Bibb County Bee Keepers Association held its monthly meeting Thursday Feb 2, 2017 at the Cahaba Lily Center in West Blocton.    A power point presentation titled “What’s wrong with my hive?” was presented and gave members the opportunity to view slides of frames from various hives and to give input on what they examined good or bad.     This was a valuable learning tool for those present.    It gave good insight on what to look for when inspecting a hive and what to do if you find potential problems.   The next meeting will be held March 2nd at 6:30 p.m. Guest speaker will be Bill Evans, Vice President of the Alabama BeeKeepers Association and the topic of discussion will be "Treatments and medications for your hives". I hope to have a great turnout as we welcome Bill Evans as our speaker. 

 

OUR OFFICERS ARE:

Tommy Davis
