After much discussion, the SCBA wants the public to know that the “organization was founded for all beekeepers in or near Sheboygan County, for the purpose of educating ourselves and prospective members, that we may better control our colonies and our environment to help and educate people about the wonders of the honey bee”. We do not  assist with other vespids (wasps, hornets, bumblebees) from unwanted locations. Please visit out BEE ID page to assist with identification. http://sheboyganbees.org/scba/bee-id/

Also, please be aware that the relocation of honey bees is not possible in late summer and fall. Honey bees need time to build up their honey stores for winter. There just isn’t enough time to move them and have them make enough honey, and they will die during winter.

Founded in 1977, the Sheboygan County Beekeepers Association has an active membership both experienced and “newbee” beekeepers.

Members share their expertise, experience, and promote the hobby of beekeeping throughout the east-central Wisconsin area.

To Promote the livelihood of the many wonders of Mother Nature … bees.
