Welcome to WillBees

With our strong membership participation, and our exciting guest speakers, we cover a variety of seasonal relevant honeybee topics. Whether you’re a seasoned pro, new to beekeeping, or are just interested in learning about honeybees, we welcome you to join our honeybee family.

We believe the best beekeeper is the informed beekeeper. Therefore it is our mission to focus on education, and have fun while doing it, whether at our monthly meetings, field day events or any of the community events in your very own neighborhood.

Please join us today.

Our meetings and special events include:

Seasonal management tips • Increasing crop yields with bees • Swarm control options

Splitting hives • Making honey • “The Golden Spoon” honey tasting competition
