|The goal of the SBA is to educate association members and the public about honeybees, beekeeping and related arts, to provide a resource for established beekeepers, to aid new beekeepers in bee management techniques, to inform the public about the value of honeybees, and to promote beekeeping in general!|
Watch this space! links to recent updatesThe SBA seed programs are an exciting and beautiful way to increase honeybee and wildbee habitat! Check out the informative pdf for details on how to participate.
Remember that there are many articles written by experienced SBA members that will come in handy now that beekeeping season is underway.
Seasonal informationHopefully you don't need this very useful article: Why did my honey bees die? (Bee Informed Partnership)
Check out what's blooming, with this handy chart, and, just in time for spring, a pollen color chart is now available on the Supporting Pollinators page, thanks to Johnny Banks at Metro Beekeepers in Fort Worth. Your bees need nectar, too! do you know what they're foraging for?
Some bees move farther than others, thanks to human transportation, nicely mapped out by National Geographic.
