Welcome to the Kalamazoo Bee Club
The Kalamazoo Bee Club provides beekeeping education, support, and bee-related services to the greater Kalamazoo area. The Kalamazoo Bee Club is an open club—anyone can be a member; no membership fee or dues are collected. We provide education through monthly programs (generally in the form of an educational presentation), field days during the non-winter months at the club apiary, and our annual Bee School.

I will discuss some common questions about queens and queen production by bees. Bring YOUR questions and we will see if we can work out answers and solutions. Queens are produced by bees under different conditions and stimuli, so beekeepers must be prepared for both positive and negative results.
