Here are most of the links that Tammy Horn spoke of at our September meeting.
Here’s the pollinator plan for KY. Note, you will likely have to copy/paste this link because it’s a PDF and many browsers can’t handle them well.
The public forum on this will be Nov.05th, which is the Fall KY State Beekeepers Association Meeting at Jenny Wiley State Park.
The Honey Bee Health Coalition:
Here’s a link to Scientific Beekeeping on which you can find instructions on how to collect samples for varroa, etc. research:
This is to inform you that you may have to reenter your username and passwords if you use a password manager. I just upgraded us to use SSL so that no one(except maybe the NSA..heh) can listen in on users logging into the system. This will make us much more secure. The reason why you may have to relogin is because the “http” changed to “https” and some password managers think that’s a brand new site(and they should)
Many(though not all) of the old blog posts have been added to the site. I removed some of the announcements about Bee School because I didn’t want it to confuse anyone who was just joining us but many of the articles, links, etc. are available on the site now.
We have a new website that is now (mostly) working. The web address is http://www.bluegrassbeekeepers.com
First of all, the classified ads aren’t working until after the next meeting because we have to discuss some things regarding payment. So if you want to put up a classified ad, you’ll just have to wait a couple weeks.
Our forum is operational. You will need to create an account on the system and it will let you post questions, etc. I will be adding things to beef up the security in the next few days so if it asks you to verify one of those “CAPTCHAs”, it’s because we’re trying to make it rough on spammers.
If you would like to contribute to the site either by posting to the blog or submitting news, contact an administrator on the FB page and we’ll get you setup. The same goes if you have suggestions for things you’d like to see on the site. A calendar of events is already in the planning and should be up soon.
