Tonight, Mark Antunes will discuss the importance and value of the annual association irradiation program he heads. He will discuss how you can participate and what you need to know to prepare your equipment for treatment.
Next, Dr. Dennis van Engelsdorp, internationally known honey bee entomologist will discuss « Beekeeping Practices – what works and what does not. » He will give a 10 to 15-minute overview of the Bee Informed Partnership (BIP) results on the web so people know how to look things up themselves. This will be followed by a 30 – 40 minute talk on the drivers of colony losses – all extremely useful information for the entire beekeeping season. Those who have heard him speak before will look forward to hearing him speak again, and if you have never heard Dennis before, you are in for a special treat.
