Intro: Norm Wilson

Speaker(s): Dave Crawford, who is President of Circleville City Council and fellow Rotary Noon Club member, and the head of the Scioto Valley Beekeepers Club.  Beekeeping is the hat he will be wearing today.  Dave & his wife Marie shared a PowerPoint presentation regarding beekeeping and the challenges they face 

Highlights:

  • Dave explained how the goal of beekeeping used to be to solely make honey.  Nowadays, their main focus is "just to keep bees alive until the next year."
  • There is a parasite/mite that attaches onto a bee and sucks the hemoglobin out.  Eventually the hive will collapse.  These mites came from Africa & Europe.
  • In 2006 there was a severe decline of bee population.  It has still not rebounded.  Was 1,099 in 2006,  now only 260 in 2016.
  • Spoke of honey bee stressors, and how every hive has a queen bee.
  • Loss of natural forage/foliage impacts the bees as well.
  • Very difficult for feral/wild bees to survive in current times.
  • Inadequate diet & genetic diversity are issues.  Each queen mates with 10-20 drones.
  • Pesticides are more of a problem than they used to be.
  • "Bees love buckwheat!"
  • Showed photos of how they transport hives, usually at night.
  • Bumblebees are better pollinators than honeybees, but not as good of a communicators.  
  • The best bee keepers are often females, due to a tendency to be more patient.
  • If you find a hive on your property, please call beekeepers to remove bees and DON'T kill them!
  • Showed how they remove bees from the frame & collect the honey
  • Revealed that he pays more money on medication for the bees than on himself every year.
  • Their club gives classes for those who are interested in becoming beekeepers.  Fellow Rotarians Norm Wilson & Chris Mullins are beekeepers, and Eric Liggett is considering it.
  • Buy your honey locally!  The local product will be fresh, and will be reinvested into the local bee population.
  • Normal life expectancy is 5-6 weeks during the summer, and during the winter it is longer.
  • Drones get kicked out in the fall due to not being good workers.  
  • Royal jelly will signal the growth of ovaries and develop a queen.
  • Jars of Norm Wilson's honey were raffled at the end of our meeting.  Norm shared some of his war stories of collecting the honey, and explained about the different types of honey.
  • Norm also displayed the candles he makes out of the honeycombs, and raffled one of them off.
