Hey all...i've been playing with bees most of my life in NY and PA, and am giving it a go in the warmer weather in Indiana. I think I've got an idea of what to do different but I feel like it's back to the drawing board to see what will work here and what won't.

Thanks in advance to everyone who gives me a hand in the near future!!

Hello and Welcome to Indiana!

First, I'd like to invite you to the State Beekeeper's meeting on June 19th at the Purdue bee yards. It's always a fun meeting with plenty of bee hives to get into. Keith Delaplane from Univ. Georgia will be joining us this summer.

Further details should be posted here in the near future:

Kathleen Prough is our State Apiary Inspector. She's a great resource. Good info on her site:

Depending on where you are in Indy, the closest local club is probably in Mooresville:

Lastly, you'll want to become familiar with Graham's Beeworks. They are distributors for Mann Lake & Kelley, plus sell nucs & queens raised in conjunction with Purdue's queen breeding program:
