March Monthly Meeting

March 10 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

NABA monthly meeting featuring “Making Increase” with Dr Larry Connor. Making Increase: How you can make new colonies from the ones you already have. Splits come in different flavors from walkaway splits to full hive increases. For most of us the method described by GM Doolittle makes a new colony with nurse bees and a new queen, reduces swarming, and you do not need to find the queen during the process

Michigan native Lawrence John Connor departed Michigan State University upon completion of his Ph.D. dissertation on strawberry pollination and assumed the position of extension apicultural entomologist at The Ohio State University in Columbus. There his program attracted the attention of investors interested in moving the Dadant Starline and Midnite Hybrid queen program to Florida to establish the world’s first mass production facility for instrumentally inseminated queen honey bees. Afterwards he moved to Connecticut where he established the Beekeeping Educational Service, offering educational programs for beekeepers. Later he purchased Wicwas Press from Dr. Roger and Mary Lou Morse. He has written a series of beekeeping book: Increase Essentials, Bee Sex Essentials, Queen Rearing Essentials and most recently Keeping Bees Alive. He is currently working on his newest book, Package Bee Essentials.
