April 14th is Next Meeting

Next meeting of the Crossroads Beekeepers will be on Monday, April 14, 2014, at 6:30pm in the basement of the U of I Extension Center, 1209 N Wenthe, Effingham. Please enter the west doors and go downstairs....listen for the buzzing of the beekeepers!

We will be having two programs at this meeting.  Larry Quicksall will meet with new beekeepers to demonstrate proper hive configuration for installing bees, initial feeding, and how to tell if your new bees are doing well.

In addition, Dave Dhom will meet with experienced beekeepers to go into detail about building up and splitting hives, which will be especially beneficial to beekeepers who suffered heavy losses this winter.

Feel free to bring a treat to share following the meeting!
