May, June, July - Summer bee season means swarming, lots of rain, and mild to hot temperatures. Your bees should be exploding in population throughout and may need more room. May is peak honey production season so get those supers on! Extra no later than probably July 4th and think about splits. But don't take it all.. the dearth in July, August, September is a colony killer.

Events and Activities

We are a small association of peers dedicated to furthering the knowledge of and interest in beekeeping in Franklin County, North Carolina.

Our club sprang to life in late 2007 due primarily to the efforts of Larry Green and a small group of people he recruited to help him. Franklin County has been until now, and may have always been, without a beekeepers association.

We are young, but rapidly growing. If you are interested in joining, please contact one of us or simply show up to a meeting. We'd love to have you.

Where we meet...

We meet 7:30pm on the last Wednesday of every month at the Franklin County Cooperative Extension located at 103 S Bickett Blvd, Louisburg, NC 27549.
