The goal of the Wood County Beekeepers’ Association is to:
Encourage and promote beekeeping
Serve as a resource for local beekeepers
Educate the community about the honey bees and beekeeping
Provide a platform for an exchange of ideas and knowledge among beekeepers
The Wood County Beekeepers’ Association is made up of all types of honey bee lovers: novice, experienced, young and old. We welcome you to join us as we learn about honey bees. As a group we share our experiences, commiserate over our failures and celebrate our victories. Together we learn about new techniques and share the “tried and true” of beekeeping.
A honey bee can fly up to 15 m.p.h.
Their wings beat 200 strokes per second, hence their distinctive buzzing sound.
