Max’s Minute

Our monthly meeting is October 25 at the DC Co-Op Country Store, 6:00-8:00pm. The topic is “How to take care of bees/getting ready for winter”.

Also note, we are starting to get freezing temps, which means that mice are looking for winter homes and there isn’t a better place for them than in a bee hive. Be sure to have mouse excluders on with a 2 inch by 3/8 inch opening for your hives next to your boardman feeder which the bees are feeding on 2 to 1 sugar water (8 lbs sugar to 1 gallon of water).

About DCBC

Our mission is to promote the study, science and craft of beekeeping through education, encouragement and community for all Door County beekeepers, and raise awareness to the benefits of bees for our environment, ecology and local economy.

We meet once a month at various locations in Door County. The meetings usually include educational information presented by experienced local/regional beekeepers. In addition, there may be a hands-on event such as a "hive dive" prior to the meeting.

Anyone can join the Door County Beekeepers Club at anytime. Membership carries for one year. Members enjoy the benefits of meetings and resources available to them through the club.
