I want to personally give Ralph Seward a hand (can you hear me clapping?) for the GREAT JOB he is doing with the Tri-State Beekeepers Association's website. I think it is just wonderful we are fortunate enough to have it. I've been sitting on photos for awhile, (ever since I took them of the class this summer) and finally I decided that I should turn them over to Ralph, as I knew he would be able to do them justice here on the website. He did a beautiful job-- Bravo. Thanks Ralph.
Virginia Wright took some great photographs at our seminar in the Summer of 2010 at the Schrader Environmental Center at Oglebay Park and here they are at last. Click on any of the images to open a slide show.

Hi Everyone, Just wanted to share a photo of me at the book signing of Buzzzzzzzz What Honeybees Do. I was invited to speak as an author at a Retired Teachers Group in Machias Maine. It was a very special moment for me being in my home state of Maine, and talking about our greatest pollinator-- the honeybee.

The September issue of Bee Culture contains a very informative article on the control of the wax moth. Among other measures discussed, the writer describes a wax moth trap that is very simple and may aid in the control of the moths/worms in stored boxes.
Daniel Caron, our member and photographer extraordinaire will present a program entitled Shooting Your Bees For Fun and Profit. Daniel promises to entertain and motivate us. We also expect some questions from the new members regarding equipment purchase and assembly.
The West Virginia Beekeepers Association has made a nine frame electric extrtactor available to our club members for their use. It comes with filtering pails, an electric decapping knife, and collecting pails. It is available to you at no charge. The unit is very nice and will make quick work of your extracting process. Anyone interested, please call Steve at (304) 242-9867.
