New Video! How to Extract Honey Using the Club's Equipment

Got a Swarm?
Occasionally honeybees are found either outdoors in a swarm (usually hanging around on a tree or bush), or else living in an inconvenient location like your attic or garage. Swarms represent free bees to us, and some of us also remove unwanted bees at low or no cost. If you need assistance in removing a swarm click here for our Swarm List.
Who We Are
The Mecklenburg County Beekeepers Association is a group of over 500 admirers of the lovely honeybee. Most of us are hobbyists, with only a few hives. A few of us have several dozen hives, and at least one of our number is a commercial honey producer with thousands of hives. We share an interest in learning more about the bees, sharing our knowledge with others and sometimes a little friendly competition. We meet on the third Thursday of each month. You do not have to be a member to attend our meetings.

Need a Beekeeper to speak at your event?
We receive many requests for speakers and we try to fill as many requests as possible. While some beekeepers are retired, most work day jobs and have other responsibilities. Due to the high number of requests and the limited number of beekeepers able to speak in public, we can't speak to every group that asks, but we do our best.
