  • San Diego Beekeeping Society

     It was my first meeting. I have a hive that seems to be settling in a base of a fountain, and I wanted to see if I could learn some things. Not sure at this point what I'll do with them. They don't seem aggressive, and at least I know now not to breath on them when I say good morning (not that I got that close anyway.)

     Great meeting tonight with good information about hive management, inspection and pest control. Thank you Hilary for the great presentation on 'non pesticide' approach and the absolutely amazing pics of 'Swarmzilla'!! Thanks to Mari Jarvis for starting the Top Bar Sharing Group. Excited to meet and learn from more Top Bar Beeks. Thank you SD Beekeeping Society for providing the opportunity. I am always grateful to meet others willing to share their experience and hands-on information. I like to think of us not so much as bee-keepers, but "bee guardians". Doing our best to keep them safe and healthy. Thanks and best of luck to all!

  • San Diego Beekeeping Society

     Lisa & I enjoyed meeting all of you enthusiastic beekeepers @ the picnic. I recommended a good book for bee lovers and misspelled the authors name. Ormond & Harry Aebi, wrote, THE ART & ADVENTURE OF BEEKEEPING. The copyright was 1975, before mites which did him in in his latter beekeeping years. They are in the, Guinness Book Of Records, 404 lbs. of honey from a single hive. Thanks for the relaxing picnic. Dennis Jobe

  • San Diego Beekeeping Society

     since it was based on volunteering, I think it turned out good, although some improvements could be done for future events. We have 600 members and I think that we could get a nice banner and more printed material. We have a great potential and opportunity to make a change and teach people about the importance of bees and the benefits of honey bee products! 600 of us can do a lot! Are you fellow SD beekeepers for all or for yourself? 600 and growing can do A LOT !!! Thank you all for being there.
