February 2024 Meeting

At this month’s meeting, the Foragers learned about “Identifying Honeybees” from Dylan. We found out that drone bees are bigger bees, but they are not elongated or have pointed abdomens like the queen bee. Dylan also told us that he likes drone bees because they can’t sting and they look cute and furry.

Members also learned that the club’s new hive was doing well. The honeybees were getting sugar patties throughout the winter. Club members Leah and Alexa told the club that they had brought about seven boxes of donated supplies from the Tidewater Beekeepers Association to our new apiary, which Mr. Brian is allowing us to store in his shed.

Big thanks to Tidewater Beekeepers Association for their generous supply donation and to Mr. Brian for sharing his shed with the club!
