This is a great event to meet other beekeepers from across the state and learn from some of the best. I will add more details and a link to registration page as they become available.
Featured speaker: Meghan Milbrath from Michigan State, who will talk about selecting for naturally mite-resistant bees. Meghan eschews live-and-let-die strategies that ruthlessly allow some hives to get overrun with mites, to the detriment of neighboring bees and beekeepers. Instead, she advocates for Varroa monitoring, selective treatment and queen replacement when warranted.
