There's a number of things we need to do to get our hives ready for winter.  Whether it's medications (or not), equipment that needs to be installed (like mouse guards), or just questions about how bees typically spend their winter (clustered around the queen, shivering for warmth), c'mon out to Mid-Michigan Beekeeper's Club to ask your questions.  As we meet the FIRST Thursday of the month, this Thursday is October 1st.  Don't let a little thing like forgetting to change over the calendar cause you to miss the meeting!  The meeting starts at 7pm, and we typically stand around talking until 9pm.

Today the first "Flint Apitherapy Bee-club" was held in Paul's (LumpyGravy) house and we continued treatments that were started last sat at the Apitherapy seminar held by the Mid Michigan Beekeepers Club. Kim (Kas1210) and Paul (LumpyGravy) increased their amount of stings... We discussed accepting donations to put towards obtaining more equipment needed to harvest pollen and Kim brought to the table a local magazine that has run bee-related articles in the past as possible ways to reach out into the community. With the emphasis of the club meetings being BVT (Bee Venom Therapy) much was discussed concerning the other forms and benefits around the table as we waited to remove the stingers and then even more conversation ensued! We would like to invite anyone interested in Apitherapy or BVT to join us Mon-Weds-Fri in the afternoon. This is a great opportunity for people interested in Apitherapy who are not beekeepers themselves or just wish to converse with others interested in this subject. Those interested please email Paul at

Flint Apitherapy Bee-Club meets Mon, Weds and Fri near Pierson Rd & I-75 in NW Flint

This upcoming Saturday, Mid-Michigan Beekeepers Club is hosting apitherapist Kristine Jacobson to speak at our usual meeting site, the Richfield Township Offices, at 10am.  Apitherapy is the use of products from the hive to aid in everyday health.  Items that Kristine will speak about include honey (believed to be useful in tissue repairing, wound dressing and burn relief), pollen (used to treat common allergies), propolis (a natural anti-oxidant), along with the sting of the honey bees themselves (believed to be useful in treating arthritis and MS).  Kristine was a guest speaker at SEMBA earlier this year, and has since been featured on the Travel Channel.  Her ideas and advice on health and wellness will surely enlighten people on treatments that have been well known in Eastern medicine, but are still considered "folk" remedies here in the States.  Please join us on Saturday, August 22, at 10am for an interesting presentation on this unique aspect of beekeeping!  Admission is free and open to the public, but donations are greatly appreciated!

Hello Beekeepers!
It was good to see everyone at last month's club picnic.  If you weren't able to join us, you missed out on some good conversation and great food.  But, it's time again for our regular club meetings again.  This Thursday, August 6th, we'd love for you to join us at the Richfield Township Offices for our Mid-Michigan Beekeepers Club meeting.  The meeting starts at 7pm and lasts until 9pm or so.  As always, feel free to bring your friends who may be curious about beekeeping.
 Later this month, Mid-Michigan Beekeeper's Club will be sponsoring apitherapist Kristine Jacobson.  Kristine lives in the Grand Rapids area and is a therapist who uses products from the hive to encourage everyday health, including propolis and pollen, in addition to Bee Venom Therapy (BVT).  BVT uses the honey bees themselves to treat such ailments as arthritis and pinched nerves.  Kristine Jacobson is slated to appear on August 22nd, at 10am at the Richfield Township Offices (our regular meeting spot).  The event is free, however donations are appreciated.  We would love for you to join us!

Mid-Michigan Beekeeper's Club will be sponsoring apitherapist Kristine Jacobson, who was guest speaker at the Spring SEMBA meeting, and was recently featured on The Travel Channel.  Apitherapy is the use of products from the hive to encourage everyday health, and uses products ranging from propolis (a natural anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial) to pollen (traditionally used to treat seasonal allergies).  Living in the Grand Rapids area, Kristine is also a practitioner of Bee Venom Therapy (BVT) and uses the honey bees themselves to treat common ailments such as arthritis and pinched nerves.  BVT has also been shown to be effective in treating patients with MS.  Technically in the realm of folk medicine, her results are very real.  Bees, and their products, have been used for centuries in Eastern medicines and is gaining interest in America.  Kristine Jacobson is slated to appear on August 22nd, at 10am.  We would love for you to join us in this interesting aspect of beekeeping!

NOTE: check out the Video Page for her appearance on THE TRAVEL CHANNELS "EXTREME ANIMAL ENCOUNTERS"

I understand that quite a few people have tried to sign up for our website but have had trouble doing so this last week. There may be many reasons for this including E3 but I do have a solution till we figure out how to fix this. If you have trouble and cannot sign up properly you may call me at 810-820-2826 and leave a message including your name and return phone number and I will call you back. DO NOT hang up if I do not answer because I normally screen my calls and probably will never answer but I do have free long distance so calling you back is no problem! - Paul 810-336-6494

It's that time again!  Mid-Michigan Beekeepers Club is meeting this Thursday, June 04, at 7pm.  We'd love to hear your beekeeping stories, and any ideas or hints you may have stumbled across this season.

At this upcoming meeting, club Treasurer Jim Withers will be passing around a sign-up sheet for the upcoming Club Picnic, set for Saturday, July 11th.  If you have a favorite dish that you enjoy making, we'd love to try it!  Contrary to popular belief, all dishes DON'T have to contain honey for them to be welcome!  Also, as a heads-up, next month's July meeting will NOT be on the first Thursday.  Instead, we've decided to have it on the second Saturday as a daytime family event.  Grilled meats, such as hot dogs and hamburgers will be provided by the Mid-Michigan Beekeeper's Club, so please sign up to bring pot-luck style side dishes!  More information will be given at the meeting.

Brad Perez has been asked to speak a little about propolis, and Don Schram has been asked to speak a little about apitherapy, better known as bee sting therapy.  And, as always, there will be time for YOUR beekeeping questions too!

So, won't you join us tomorrow?  We hope to see you there!
