February, March, April - Spring for bees! Wet, but cold, and yet warm.
In February, the Maple trees blossom bringing the first pollen source available to honey bees for the year. Queens start laying on warm days, but... cold snaps will lead to some chillbrood. But the season has started! Avoid inspecting on cold days, but be ready for population increases. Get your equipment ready!

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.
