Inspecting Brood Frame Honey Bears for Sale


We are a local chapter of the North Carolina State Beekeepers Association. Our purpose is to educate beekeepers in the most up-to-date methods of tending bees, including proper use of equipment, medications, and the timing of beekeeping activities throughout the year.

Members help educate the public about the benefits and impacts bees have in the pollination of fruits, vegetables, and flowers. One of our endeavors is to reassure the public that having honeybees is a highly positive condition in our environment. Monthly meetings provide an opportunity for beekeepers to share experiences, problems, innovations, as well as fellowship. Our organization is open to anyone who has an interest in beekeeping.

We partner with N.C. Cooperative Extension in a variety of workshops and programs throughout the year. 


Monthly meetings are held on the last Tuesday of the month, except December

7 p.m. | Citizens Resource Center, 1303 Dallas-Cherryville Hwy., Dallas, NC



Mondays, January 23 – March 27th | 7 – 9 p.m.

The course prepares students to begin keeping honey bee colonies and to complete an optional certification test with the NC Master Beekeeper Program. Includes optional workshops to teach students how to assemble hives parts and provide opportunities to get hands-on experience working with bees in established apiaries.


Some Gaston County Beekeepers Association members are willing to relocate HONEY BEES ONLY from your property* to an apiary so they can continue to benefit our farms and gardens with pollination and our menus with honey.

If you have yellow-jackets, hornets or wasps, please consult the yellow pages or the internet to find information on contacting a local exterminator.

*Some beekeepers will remove honeybees from within walls of structures. This process is called a cutout; they may charge a fee for this service, and they may or may not perform structural repairs. Make sure you understand what the beekeeper is agreeing to do before work begins.
