Born & Bred in NC Queen Breeding Bee Yard – October 14, 2019

October 14, 2019

Have you ever wished you had access to a good queen without either having to drive a long way to get her or to take your chances in the mail? Have you thought about raising some queens of your own but don’t have the equipment or the confidence to try it on your own? If you’ve ever had these thoughts, you are not alone and this meeting is one you won’t want to miss.

A steering committee of members have put together a presentation outlining a plan to create a bee yard on Surry Community College property that will be used to grow bees and breed queens. The presentation will include how members can help and also benefit from this endeavor. The NC State Beekeepers Born & Bred program may also provide support for the project ( learn more here ).
