Summer Schedule

No OCBA Meeting In July!

In July the North Carolina State Beekeeper’s Association holds its annual summer meeting. This is a great opportunity to meet other beekeepers, participate in workshops, and hear lectures from some of the top researchers in the country. Because the meeting coincides with our July meeting the OCBA will have no July Meeting. To learn more about this event go to:
Instead of our meeting we will hold a potluck/ hive inspection. This will be a chance for us to spend time together socially. We will also do a full hive inspection and test for Varroa mite loads with our state inspector, Will Hicks. Please RSVP with Fred Fesel to obtain directions and help us manage the potluck by telling us what dish you would like to bring and how many are in your party.
Look Forward to seeing you there.
