Like popcorn, there are many different kinds of beekeepers. Would you like to know more? Volunteer to work at the Indiana Beekeepers' Association State Fair booth and see what we mean. Details on the schedule, local club days and how to volunteer are posted on the Indiana State Fair page.
Swarms are more prevalent in the Spring; however, anytime a hive is overcrowded they may swarm. If you need to find someone interested in removing swarms check out the Swarm Call List link below. What's the difference between a swarm and a cut out or trap out?
Here is a Swarm Call List of Indiana Beekeepers Association by county along with name and contact numbers.

The Bee Informed Partnership is a 5 year effort funded by USDA/NIFA (U.S. Department of Agriculture/National Institute of Food and Agriculture). It is a large collaboration between research institutions, Universities, and beekeepers from all over the country.
The main idea behind the Bee Informed Partnership is to get information collected from beekeepers back to beekeepers quickly so they can make more informed decisions.
For more information on this and other research being done, visit the Research section on our Bee Links page.
