CEBA offers classroom and hands-on apiary experience

CEBA hosts monthly Monday night meetings that feature guest or local speakers.

We also offer "second Saturday of the month" hands-on workshops in the CEBA apiary, located within the Oatland Island Wildlife Center in Savannah, Ga. Members and visitors inspect hives, document their findings and decide what is the next course of action to help the colonies thrive.

These monthly events are a great way to see if beekeeping is right for you and to expand your knowledge if you are already a beekeeper.

Learn more about our upcoming events.

It's swarm season ... Need a swarm of bees removed?

Call a CEBA beekeeper to come remove a swarm!

Before you call, be prepared to answer these questions:

  • Are you sure the insects are honey bees?
  • Where is the swarm located - in a tree, side of building, etc.
  • How high off the ground is the swarm?
  • Do you own the property where the bees are?

This is Rob Potts removing a swarm (dark blob next to drain pipe) from the side of a building in historic downtown Savannah, Ga.!
