Today's Buzz

A reminder of today's KBEE meeting at KCC. The meeting will start at 4pm and be finished around 5:30pm. We'll be in the Electronic & Technology Building . Look for the KBee banner at the north end of the campus' Performing Arts Center main parking lot and you can't miss us. We'll bee discussing at length the work involved with removing unwanted bees from buildings and relocating them to where they will be wanted ( and easier to manage).

Kapahi beekeeper Roy Kawamoto has been invited to share his expertise in this area. We'll also talk a little about a project by the Marin County Beekeepers and the Penn State CCD research team to study the effect of pesticides on local pollinators. We'll see if there's interest to do something similar here.

We'll wrap up the meeting with an update on upcoming beekeeping courses from KCC. Most likely these will begin in August and run through the fall. State apiarist Danielle Downey will provide much of the instruction along with local beekeepers.

Hopefully we'll bee seeing you today or at an upcoming event to share more info about keeping Kaua'i bees clean, healthy and free of the maladies that are so common elsewhere.

Untill then, bee well, bee happy and if you can't bee with the one you love, love the one you're with. Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there : )

  1. Anyone know of a beekeeper who will remove a colony from my house so that I don't have to exterminate them.
