APRIL 2018

 

THIS MONTHS MEETING

 

Saturday 28th April

Terry Clair from the Medway Beekeepers will be coming along to talk to us about the native Black Bee.

Terry is currently rearing Black Bees on the Isle of Sheppy.

 

It is hoped that we will be able to work with Terry and with his contacts start to convert our hives at the Apiary to Black Bee Colonies and eventually rear our own Black Bee Queens in the future although this will be several years away before we can assure a true Black Bee mating.
