Varroa Mites...yikes!

Ashe County beekeepers are cautioned that the varroa mite infestation has started and everyone needsto be vigilant taking mite counts to see what kind of IPM is needed....and be deciding when to do it. Word from off the mountain form an experienced beekeeper is that they were plowing through many hives!!!

"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!"

Attention beekeepers of the NCSBA

August 25, 2017

Many of us have heard about the Beehive Grant Fund which was approved this year by the NC General Assembly. The North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services’ Agricultural Development and Farmland Preservation Trust Fund officials have asked the NCSBA to forward information concerning the fund and how to submit an application to the members of the NCSBA. Information has been posted at www.ncbeekeepers.org and the North Carolina State Beekeepers Association Facebook page. Interested persons should read this information in its entirety and email any questions to the Born and Bred Program chairman Paul Newbold at beefarmer1349@gmail.com
