A quick update on the bee orders through the club.

Scott talked to Elaine Kohn (our supplier for the main bee order);  she said that the bees will arrive this Sunday, April 13th. She can't give us an exact time until this Saturday; we will let everyone know once we have received word of a firm time.

Scott and Dave will pick up the bees and bring them to Menomonie. The pick up place will the the parking lot at the Dunn County Fish and Game Clubhouse.

Make sure you have your apiary and hive equipment ready. Also prepare some sugar syrup (1:1 mix) for your bees. They will be hungry. They should be installed in your hives as soon as possible after you receive them. If this is your first time installing packages, hop on YouTube and watch a few videos - they will really help!

Please make arrangements to pick up your bees this Sunday. If you cannot pick up your bees personally at that time, please make arrangements with someone else as we can't be held responsible for their care and upkeep.

As soon as we will know approximate times when the bees will in Menomonie , we will email or call you. We will also put an update on the Facebook page.
