New Resources in Northwest Arkansas
The Benton County Beekeepers Association has recently begun meeting in Pea Ridge. Also new in the same neighborhood is Prepper Bee Supply. The ABA welcomes you!
Summer Time in Arkansas
We have had an unusually wet beekeeping season this year in many parts of The state. While some moderate temperatures are appreciated, the bees can have a more difficult time ripening their honey with such high humidity. Lots or rainy days can also affect queen mating flight success. Many beekeepers have reported queen losses or poorly laying queens this year.
