The Chatham County Beekeepers’ Association has been inspiring and educating beekeepers since 1976.
We also promote beekeeping to the general public to raise awareness of the importance of bees to our local food system and our communities.
We hope you enjoy our website – please visit often as it grows. We invite you to attend one of our meetings or events. We welcome beekeepers of all levels of experience as well as folks interested in starting a hive or two.
March Monthly Meeting
On Thursday, March 16th, the Chatham County Beekeepers’ Association (CCBA) meets at 7:00 p.m. in the old Agricultural Building Auditorium in Pittsboro, NC.
Everyone is welcome to attend the meetings. You do NOT have to be a member of the CCBA to come to the meetings.
- 7:00-7:30 pm – Business meeting and local calendar (beekeeping tasks for the month)
- 7:30-9:00 pm – Chris Senters will be presenting on swarm management.
Swarm management is one of beekeepers’ biggest challenges this time of year. Chris will share how he manages this natural process and discuss what he has learned from reading and working with other beekeepers and their hives. He will also cover how to catch a swarm.
Chris has been working with bees and beekeepers for a few years now. He has noticed that many people quit after only a few seasons, if even that long. He will share what he has learned, with the objective of helping beekeepers stay in this wonderful, rewarding hobby.
