Barbour Beekseepers meeting set for today

The Barbour County Beekeepers will meet at 7 p.m. today at the Philippi Farmers Market. The meetings are an opportunity for beekeepers to get together to discuss problems and successes with their bees.

This month, many beekeepers will be getting new packages of bees. The topic of the educational section of today’s meeting will be, “What do I do now that I got the Bees in the hive?”

The group will discuss how long to feed bees and the general needs of the hive.

Also, the youth scholarship winner will get their start with bees. Equipment is available and bees will be arriving soon. For more information, call Lester Lind at 304-457-1420.
