NEKBA is your Northeastern Kansas Beekeepers' Association.

Welcome, and thank you for exploring our site. Check out what's happening locally for beekeepers on our FB group site, what's going in our hives, and what's blooming in your backyards. Come back soon.

Honey production and pollination services increase significantly, and so does beekeeper enjoyment and honey bee health in general, by improving regional and independent beekeeping practices through better husbandry and recognition skills of diseases and pest problems as well as and better colony management.

Beekeeping is an increasingly popular, enjoyable, and deliciously rewarding hobby. As a local association, we offer you some advice on how to continue and get started in 2019. The association connects you with other beekeepers, and supports a common effort to promote and protect bees, and the beekeeping industry, of which we are all a part.
