Show Us Your Beekeeping Plates!!

Thatโ€™s the Editors License Plateโ€ฆBEEMAG. He has a personal plate that he pays extra for, and he makes a contribution to the Ohio State Beekeepers Association so he has that extra bit on it, too. What we want from you is YOUR STATEโ€™S Plate, with your beekeeping message on it. But this can work 3 waysโ€ฆ.a simple personal plate that says something like BEEMAG. Or a regular plate that advertises your state association, like the OSBA does here, or your plate like this one that has both. Be Proud of your state, your plate and your message. Show the world your BEEMessage. Send a cell phone shot to [email protected], with PLATE in the subject box. Weโ€™ll share it with the world.

Early spring is a critical time for honey bees. Their honey stores are at their lowest and even though the weather is warming up and they may appear to be active, there isnโ€™t an abundance of flowers in early spring.

Why hexagons? ๐Ÿ In order to maximize the limited space in a hive, you need a shape that can fit together with no gaps in between. Circles won't work, but what about triangles or squares? ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ Hexagons are even efficient than other shapes because they require less building material (beeswax) and are structurally very strong ๐Ÿ‘ Each cell can hold 25 times its own weight!
.
Plus, it's super beautiful, especially when filled with fresh nectar ๐Ÿฏ

The September OCBA meeting has been CANCELLED due to the impending arrival of Hurricane Florence. In the words of our own Eric Talley, "Please collect enough pollen to feed your kids, enough nectar to make your honey to keep you going while cooped up during the storm, plenty of water, and enough propolis to fill all of your gaps around windows and doors." Be safe, and we'll see you next month!
