Indiana Bee School XXII

2024 Bee School will be held on February 24th, 2024 at Horizon Convention Center in Muncie, Indiana. Dr. Judy Wu-Smart and Shelby Kittle will be our Guest Speakers.  We’ll also have a speaker from Dalan Animal Health to share with us the latest on the vaccine for American Foul Brood.

Dr. Judy Wu-Smart leads the Bee Lab at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.  Lab staff and students organize beekeeping workshops and field days, and answer questions about pollinator health and management. Her appointment is 65% extension and 35% research.

Shelby Kittle is a graduate student and research technician at University of Nebraska-Lincoln Bee Lab.  She is mentored by Dr. Judy Wu-Smart.

Our Indiana Honey Queen will be holding a session on making candles and we have sessions on “Catching Swarms”, “Diagnosing Dead-outs”, and “Pests and Diseases”.

In addition to the educational sessions, we’ll have our raffle, live auction and silent auction again.  Many vendors will be on-hand with a variety of products and supplies for both show and to purchase.

The cost to attend is the same as it’s been for several years now: $50 for members, $60 for non-members and all registrations include a buffet lunch.  Our goal is to make it affordable for our beekeepers to attend.

We will again have an all-day Beginner Class.  It will be held at the same time as the conference.  The cost for the Beginner Class is $55 for members and $65 for non-members and includes the buffet lunch.

Pre-registration is required for either school.  The dead line to per-register is February 10th 2024.
