Honey Bee Swarm - Mecklenburg County
Honey Bee Swarm – Mecklenburg County

Lewis Cauble, past president of OCBA and now a Bee Inspector for the NC Department of Agriculture’s mountain region, will return to Orange County Beekeepers to help us plan for spring events in the apiary. He will discuss spring build up, swarm mitigation and colony splits. Spring is a time┬áto anticipate swarms and to attempt to adjust hive┬áspace and environmental conditions to keep our bees healthy, productive and at home. Lewis will provide guidance to help us accomplish those goals.
