The TVBA August meeting included discussions on the three common challenges for beekeepers: Small Hive Beetles, Varroa Mites, and Quality Queens. See the minutes for details.
Remember, the October 11th meeting will be Officer Election night. We are trying to get Dr. Tew to hold a video conference on Winterizing and Winter Feeding.
The December meeting will be our Christmas Dinner.
The February meeting discussion will be on making Splits.
The weather was great for the annual TVBA picnic. David & Peggy Lynch were the gracious hosts at their farm. About 26 folks attended and enjoyed visiting and of course, talking about their bees.
Spring is Here!
Bees are bringing in pollen to feed their young. Many of our members are capturing swarms or splitting colonies to expand their apiaries.

The June meeting for the TVBA will be Saturday, June 10th at the home of David and Peggy Lynch. This will be our annual picnic meeting, so please bring a covered dish and lawn chairs. We plan to start at 1:00 pm.
TVBA Members will be hosting an educational booth at the Lawrence County Indian Festival May 18, 19, & 20 from 8am to 4pm daily. Any members that can assist with the booth, just show up. Saturday is the big day, so extra help will be needed then.
