Beekeepers to meet in a new location

The Barbour County Beekeepers will meet Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Philippi Farmers Market.

The group will be making plans for the upcoming year’s events. There will also be a review of how to install a package of bees. With the large number of losses the group will have a lot of new package bees this year.

Other discussions for the evening will be “How to clean out a dead hive” and “How to give a beekeeping presentation on various aspects of beekeeping to other community groups.” As usual, officials will have the “Buzz” with open

discussion.

Don’t forget we are meeting at the Philippi Farmers Market. If you have any questions or need further information, please call Lester Lind at 304-457-1420.
