    • 10/02/2021
    • 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
    • American Bee Supply, 2686 Piney Grove Rd, Kernersville, NC 27284

    In an effort to help honey bees, Ingredion Inc of Winston Salem has offered once again to provide Forsyth County Beekeepers Association bulk corn syrup for distribution to our members to feed their bees.   

    The stipulation with this offer is our association can't sell what we receive and no one receiving it from us can sell this corn syrup. 

    We have had a few members step forward to work out the logistics of filling and transporting totes (approximate 300 gallons each) of corn syrup to American Bee Supply,  2686 Piney Grove Rd, Kernersville, NC 27284 for distribution to FCBA members who registered to pickup their allotment of corn syrup on  Saturday, October 2, 2021, from 9 am to 12 noon.  

    Each registered member will be limited to the amount they registered for up to a max of 10 gallons.  Based on previous years we believe we are going to have about 30 people who are interested in this offer.  How did we come to this allotment amount: 300 gallons /30 people = 10 gallon maximum first fill.  After we have distributed all registered amounts we will let everyone registered line up again and get seconds using the same formula or until we run out.  We are attempting to get multiple totes for this final give-away.

    Registration will close Thursday, 9/30/2021.

    Please remember you can't sell the syrup you receive from this program. It is each registered member's responsibility to bring containers that will not leak and can hold the liquid dispensed. Last but not least this is a benefit for our members only. If you have some one who is interested all they have to do is become a member and then register for the program.

    Forsyth County Beekeepers Association October Meeting @ Robinhood Road Baptist Church  

    NO Dinner!  Masks are required.

    Presentation: 6:00 pm
    Meeting: 7:00 pm

    Speaker:  Doug Vinson, President NCSBA

    Topic:  "Overwintering in Small Boxes"

    It is our pleasure to have Doug Vinson, President of the North Carolina State Beekeepers Association, member of the Catawba Valley Beekeepers, and long-time beekeeper, speak to us about "Overwintering in Small Boxes."  Did you have to or want to make late season splits, and they are in nucs?  Did you catch a small swarm that you are trying to get through the winter?  There are any number of reasons you may have to face this (or are facing it!) and Doug can discuss problems that might arise, how to deal with them, and how to be successful with your small-boxed, overwintering bees.  Join us in a relaxed discussion, and questions are welcome!
