May Monthly Meeting

May 9, 2023 @ 6:15 pm – 8:15 pm

Raising Local Queens | Jane Sueme, Co-founder of Saint Louis Beekeepers

Jane will present on the Saint Louis Beekeepers Sustainable Stock Apiary's work to raise local, regionally-adapted queen stock. Jane will share the story of how their project was inspired by Randy Oliver with Scientific Beekeeping and SLU bee researcher Geraldo Camillo. The team of Saint Louis’ Sustainable Stock Apiary (SSA) beekeepers were awarded USDA-SARE grants in 2017 and again in 2021 to financially assist their queen-rearing project. Jane will detail how the grants supported their efforts to make local queens available to the St. Louis beekeeping community.We will also spend extra time on the Q+A session of "This Month in Beekeeping" to answer all your questions during this critical month of beekeeping.  Hope you join us.
