Sheriff’s Training Center, 412 Bolivar Bishop Drive, DeRidder, LA 70634
There will come a time when a queen bee is unable to produce brood and to maintain the strength of the hive. A beekeeper can replace the old queen with a new queen, and this meeting will discuss how to acquire a queen and how to introduce her to the established hive. Another reason to attend this meeting is to learn more about having bees by asking experienced beekeepers for advice. For more information, please contact Keith Hawkins, Area Horticulture Agent (AHA), 337-463-7006. Also, you may also obtain regular “beemail” updates about beekeeping by sending your request by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
