The Southwest Louisiana Beekeepers Association met on May 4th at the WMCC.  President Richard Herbert discussed starting a beehive, the pros and cons.  Obtain your starter bees from a reputable supplier, a swarm, or split from a large healthy hive.  Place bee hive in full sun, near water, not near neighbors, convinent area, and check bees generally weekly.  Talllow trees produce the largest nectar flow in Beauregard Parish, from late May to early June – approx a 2 week period.
The next SWLA Beeks meeting will be the first Monday in June where harvesting and tasting local honey honey will be demonstrated.  Hot Biscuits will be served with the honey.  YALL COME!    Jec
