Monday, March 20th, 7pm 
Speaker: P.N. Williams
Topic:  How to Catch Swarms

Bee season has started early this year and swarms are aloft. Catching swarms is not only fun but rewarding. What better way to expand your apiary than with FREE BEES! But collecting a swarm comes with its own set of difficulties. Having the right equipment can make the difference between a successful capture or a failed attempt. Capturing the swarm safely should be the main consideration, especially since swarms can be located high up in trees or in difficult places.


P.N. Williams, the founder of Tara Beekeepers Association, has 60+ years of experience as a beekeeper—and as a swarm catcher. His talk will include why bees swarm, how to prevent bees from swarming (if they’re your bees) and how to catch bees that have swarmed.
