Swarms are more prevalent in the Spring; however, anytime a hive is overcrowded they may swarm. What's the difference between a swarm and a cut out or trap out? If you need to find someone interested in removing swarms check out the Swarm Call List link below. If you have bees in a structure, check out the Cut Out List link below.
Swarms - a cluster of bees that have landed on a temporary location, usually a tree limb or fence.
Cut outs - hive of bees are in a structure; home, garage, etc.
Trap Outs- a hive is located inside a structure that prohibits the removal of any of the structure to get to the bees. This is the most time consuming and requires several trips to the location.
As a member of The Beekeepers of Indiana, you'll receive a quarterly newsletter. If your newsletter has been returned to us two quarters in a row, the next quarter will not be sent until we are notified and have a correct address.
If you have moved, or will be at a different location and your mail is not forwarded, please contact us so you don't miss out on any important beekeeping events happening in Indiana. Contact Debbie Seib, the Treasurer for address changes.
Interested in speaker at other local associations? Have a specific area of beekeeping expertise and willing to share that knowledge with other beekeepers?
Many of our local clubs would like to hear what other clubs are doing, tips and tricks for keeping our honey bees alive and surviving through winter.
Perhaps you are passionate about Top Bar Hives, Warre Hives or just Live Hives and you'd like to share that passion with other beekeepers.
Send an email to email@example.com, subject "Speaker List".
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 other 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.
Here is a observation hive in a 150 year old oak Greg and Krispn are going to donate to the club to be auctioned off at the Purdue Field Day June 18th. It was part of the entomology teaching and extension there. All the funds will be used to help with their pollinator garden.
The weekend of our conference is a home football game for Notre Dame so hotels will be filling up fast. If you wish to book your room, Swan Lake will hold the rooms for us until September 1. Registration is now open for the Fall Beekeeping School. For more information, click here.
Yes, you are seeing correctly. You may sign up for a complimentary membership to our national beekeeping organization.

What is Apimondia? Apimondia is the bi-annual congress of the International Federation of Beekeepers’ Associations. The federation was founded in 1949 and has a mission of promoting the scientific, technical, ecological, social and economic apiculture development in all countries.
The next Apimondia International Congress will be held in Istanbul, Turkey September 29th - October 4, 2017.
There were over 30 individuals who paid their own way to help participate in our bid for 2019. We had a great presentation and Congress planned. Our team did a FANTASTIC job in South Korea, but the USA was not selected to host the 2019 Apimondia congress. We are certainly disappointed, but take pride in all we have accomplished over the past three years. Thank you to all our committee members, sponsors and all of you for your support during this project.
I'd especially like to thank Indiana for it's support. Both State Organizations, Local Clubs and individual beekeepers were the first to answer the call to assist our efforts. Debbie Seib, Chairman
