Hughes Hosts Indian Beekeeper

Over the summer, New Jersey Beekeepers Association (NJBA) President Bob Hughes was contacted by Indian beekeeper Srikantan's daughter. Srikantan, 85, was in NJ visiting his daughter and son-in-law. In Indian, he has 10 colonies of bees. After finding the NJBA website, Srikantan's daughter contacted Bob, and the two beekeepers visited on Saturday, July 15, 2006. Srikantan, shown here with Bob Hughes in his honey house, was surprised at the modern extracting equipment.
