Ask The Beekeeper

April 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

A discussion and Q&A with Dave Lewcon of Dave Lewcon Apiaries, Uxbridge, MA

Now is the busiest time of year for bees and beekeepers alike.  It’s easy to get overwhelmed with the speed of a growing hive, changing brood patterns, and the myriad of never-seen-before surprises and behaviors that befuddle both novice AND experienced beekeepers.For 90 minutes, Dave will discuss these changes, share his experiences (and ‘stories’), and answer our questions. This is a great opportunity to bring your questions, from basic to impossibly hard, and share your observations. BABA will award a free hive tool to whoever brings the most awesome or challenging observation or question.

Dave has over 120 hives in Worcester & Norfolk Counties and in Rhode Island.  He is a board member, Bee School Instructor, and the Worcester County Beekeepers Association Communications Director.  In 2018 he was Worcester County’s “Beekeeper of the Year.”  He was also involved in studies sponsored by Harvard and the USDA that analyzed the toxic response of neonicotinoids to honeybees
