Winter into Summer

Our activities have shifted from winter discussions to work with our own bees, perhaps queen rearing if the weather improves, and to our informal monthly members’ meetings online. Looking back at our winter season, we had a great range of talks and discussions, many of which were recorded and can be viewed from our member’s pages. Sign on if you are a member and go to Members > SNHBS Talks and Workshops – and if you are not already a member you know what to do! Checkout the multi-contributor meeting on Chalkbrood, the science of Inbreeding in humans, bees and plants, Gabriele Soland’s talk on breeding native honey bees in Switzerland and Ben Harden with his thoughts on Amm. It is wonderful being able to call on such a range of thoughtful people who can contribute insight on conserving native honey bees.
