Don't panic! If these are honey bees, they rarely sting when left alone and they are very docile without a hive to defend. A new swarm will form a cluster for several hours prior to flying off to a permanent home. That new home could be somebody's house which might require an expensive extraction. Instead, allow us to dispatch a beekeeper to gather the swarm so that it can reside in a more welcoming and productive home.
Meetings are held at the Atlanta Botanical Garden in Mershon Hall on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. The Annual Picnic and Honey Contest held in September may be scheduled for a different day than the regular meeting day. Please see the Calendar for more details about scheduled events.
Meetings usually include interesting speakers and discussions on a variety of topics related to beekeeping, such as hive management, honey bee problems, honey, beeswax, and other hive products.
Meetings begin at 7:00 pm and conclude by 9:00 pm.
Everyone interested in honey bees is welcome!
