The East Central Ohio Beekeepers Association provides a great opportunity for anyone with an interest in bees to come and gather great resources and knowledge about the honeybee. Practical knowledge, workshops and demonstrations are planned throughout the year. At every meeting we discuss important bee topics along with a Q & A with a panel of experienced beekeepers. Everyone is welcome!
Our mission is to support beekeeping in the east central Ohio area counties of Fairfield, Licking, Muskingum and Perry. We provide our membership with educational opportunities, updates on current beekeeping information and methods, and promote public awareness about the important benefits of beekeeping to our
global food supply
Our meetings are held the third Thursday of each month beginning at 6:30 PM - visit our Schedule & Calendar page to see all our upcoming events
SWARMS - make sure you are checkerboarding or putting a ton of supers on for room. If you have queen cells along the edge, your colony may be ready to swarm. NOW is the TIME to do splits on overcrowded colonies.
Large Swarm being taken out of New Albany school - super fast, dumped in a bag! It was in the pickup zone for the buses, they had just minutes before the buses arrived so they had to hurry. Applause ensued! Check out the videos and the picture.
