The May meeting presentation is titled " Swarms and Splits for Free Bees". If your bees made it thru the winter they will probably swarm, a natural way the bee colonies reproduce. We will cover how to get those bees before they swarm and also how to catch swarms to increase the bee hives in your apiary, or to sell and recoup some of your investment. This is a fun and interesting presentation for all levels of beekeeper experience.
