Update from our 2020 Scholarship Winner

At our September 26th meeting held outdoors at Big Creek Park, Liz gave us a presentation on the status of her bees

A Year of Beekeeping

Congratulations Liz, you've taken this further than we dreamed!

Jim Davis has agreed to do inspections on a limited basis for Geauga county. He is also the inspector for Lake County. If you, as a beekeeper, if you suspect you have American FoulBrood then by all means have Jim come over to look at your hives. Also, if you are going to sell hives, bees or queens, they have to be inspected before you can sell them. If you have any other problems with bees please call a friend or member of the bee club to try to resolve the problem.

The Geauga County Beekeepers Association was founded on January 8th, 1976 at the Fowler Mills Church. Our club has approximately 70 members who attend our regular meetings.

Our mission is to enlighten the public about the benefits of beekeeping; to keep members updated on information such as diseases, equipment and beekeeping events; and to support each other by sharing our personal beekeeping experiences as well as helpful hints and guidance.

Members keep up to date on each others losses due to mites, hive beetles and natural predators such as bears and skunks.
