  Our favorite bee teacher, Beth Conrey, will be in Durango on Friday, May 19th, and in Cortez on Saturday, May 20th, for the Traveling Road Show.  We'll need 3 volunteers from each area for the club to come and see the bees.  This is a ton of fun, and we all learn so much, even if we've been at the Traveling Road show before.  Don't miss it!

Ordering bees!

Our package bee order is now open! Our bees originate with Oliverez bees and Knight Family Honey.  They are transported from CA to Utah via air-ride, temperature controlled trucks.  Cool bees are happy bees!  Ray Oliverez is working to breed mite and disease resistant, docile bees. We have had very good luck with these bees.  They arrive alive and healthy, and do very well for us in successive years with proper care. Ordering bees with us is a privilege of our members. We plan to deliver the bees to Durango on April 29th, but keep the next weekend open as well, in case of poor queen mating weather. You can find membership and order forms attached below.
