    Dan Curran has had very good overwintering success. He will be sharing his techniques and strategies for increasing your odds of successfully overwintering your hives. As always, we will also have time for open discussion on this topic and any other questions you may have.


We are an informal group of beekeepers in the Wisconsin Dane County area. Anyone keeping bees or interested in keeping bees is welcome to participate. Join the a Madbees google group to join in the email discussion and/or join us our monthly meetings.


Many club members are able and willing to give you practical help.  Post your request on Madbees, and someone will answer. Alternately, a club member, Jeanne Hansen is available to call at 608-244-5094
