She's author of Dronings from a Queen Bee: The First Five Years, and the kid's book If I Could Sit on a Bee's Knees, among other publications regarding bees.  All profits from speaking, book sales and honey go to food bank charities.  Her website,, advises newbees what to look for when in their hives, and overviews her bee involvement. Charlotte speaks nationally on behalf of this critical insect, often focusing on the human-bee dynamic. Her topic for us this month will be on her experiences with Bee removal from structures.

We will also discuss fall feeding and winter preparation.

For your convenience we have also invited TM Kline & Sons and Keith Lazar from Bugg's Nest to attend our meeting.
