Welcome to the Salt Spring Island Beekeepers website! Whether you are new to beekeeping or are a seasoned apiarist we hope that Salish Sea area beekeepers will find this information useful and enjoyable.
Please join us at our next meeting on Wednesday April 9th - 7:00 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at the Farmer's Institute. We are excited to have Linda Gilkeson, Ph.D as our guest speaker. Her topic is "Wasp Management - Keeping Your Hives Wasp Free". Last year many of our island hives were destroyed by wasps. Come learn how to protect your colony. Linda will also be giving us an update on the Varroa Mite Bio-Control Study!
Also at this meeting Kelly Johnson will present her findings on the losses of this past winter. Thank you Kelly for collecting this valuable information!
Please join us with your questions for Linda and Kelly. Coffee, tea, and cookies will be provided. Thanks for bringing your own mug.
