IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN!
The Yellow Jackets are back in force! For people who have a hard time telling the difference between a yellow jacket and a honey bee, check the images above. Yellow Jackets have yellow legs, while Honey Bees have black legs.

UPCOMING VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES!
2016 Hive Requests:
We are exploring several opportunities for beekeepers for 2016.If you are interested in placing hives in other locations than your own, please email Will Merrill (email@example.com) and indicate how many hives you are willing to place, and what area you would prefer (i.e. Northern, Southern or Eastern Franklin County; a particular city, like Grove City; Worthington, Westerville, etc.). This will be a referral service of COBA only. We will not negotiate any terms or conditions, nor will we be responsible for arbitrating any issues. We are trying to match beekeepers with land owners willing to have hives placed on their property.
The objectives and purpose of the Central Ohio Beekeepers Association shall be to promote the further interest and well being of apiculture and to educate beekeepers and the public in the importance of honeybees, honey, other by-products and pollination in our country.
