The Northern Kentucky Beekeepers Association
We are an organization of beekeeping enthusiasts.  Beekeeping is a centuries old hobby - keeping and caring for honey bees to preserve them for their usefulness in pollinating plants and providing healthy beehive products that include honey, propolis, bees wax and pollen.

And in this ever changing world in which we live in...
Even if you don't keep honeybees, there is a lot that you can do to help preserve and protect. "Bee" a part of the solution. There is a lot we can learn from the honeybee.

 Have A Swarm?

If you have a swarm of honeybees, please give us a call. We will be glad to help. 

We have a list of members that can respond quickly to help capture a swarm.
Scroll down to the bottom of the page to find a member contact in your area.

Swarming Season is around April and May! (Sometimes earlier, sometimes later.)

  As spring begins to arrive, a vigorous, healthy colony of honey bees - whether from a hive, a tree or your home -may likely swarm as nature's way of continuing their genetic line.  A swarm is docile, not to be feared and it has incredible energy to produce comb and brood and honey.  The swarm can be spotted in unlikely locales from backyards to industrial areas.

Honeybees have had to battle a lot of environmental factors and pests, more so over the last decade. Fortunately, a lot of good folks are interested in doing what they can to help save the honeybee and other pollinators.

The Northern Kentucky Beekeepers Association is committed to assisting in preserving and encouraging the honey bee population.  We respectfully request that you please do not spray the bees. Contact us if you have a swarm and would like one of our beekeepers to remove it and add it to their apiary.

Never underestimate the value of the honey bee for pollination, honey, wax and other hive commodities that are used in everyday products. And we should never underestimate that when a very important species is falling into rapid decline we should take notice. Even if you don't keep honeybees, you can do a lot to help them survive.
