CONCEPTS IN VARROA MANAGEMENT Varroa continues to be the number one problem for beekeepers. In our own operation, we’ve successfully managed varroa, without the use of synthetic miticides, since 2001. We’ve tried most every control option, and I’ll share we’ve found to work (including selective breeding). An effective mite management plan must be based upon the understanding of the biology of the mite. I present important biological concepts to help beekeepers to plan effective mite management strategies tailored to their own operations.

Who? This would especially be good for newbees-to-3rd year beekeepers or those experienced beekeepers who could contribute to hive assessment and time of year activity. Join us at Riverside Cemetery/Pollinator Meadow. Why? To determine what might be going on in the hive this time of year, how to prepare for warmer weather ahead and to determine adequate stores and to make the decision to supplement, as needed.

Our February 13th meeting will feature Tina Sebestyen. Tina will answer your beekeeping questions from 6:30 -7:00pm and then will present, "All About the Queen". Everyone from the newest beekeepers to the old pros will learn something interesting about queen bees. Here's what Tina has to say: "Pretty much the only thing beginning beekeepers are taught is that there is only one queen in the colony, and it turns out, not even that is true! Why does a queen lay eggs in supersedure cells when it means her death? Why do queens sometimes ignore queen cups, and what triggers them to lay eggs in cups later? Why do bees still start queen cells when there is a caged queen in the hive? Why do they kill your brand new, expensive queen, and how can we improve queen acceptance? All of these questions can be answered by understanding All About the Queen. Can’t wait to see you all!"
