Outsmarting Varroa Mites: How to Keep Your Hive Healthy 

When: Sun., Aug. 21, 1-4 p.m. 2016
Price: $40
Varroa mites are the primary cause of colony collapse disorder and bee population decline. The instructor, Jennifer Radtke, will share her year-round plan for mite management. We’ll open up a live bee hive and demonstrate detection and preventative measures (including the sugar roll test and drone comb frames), so you will be prepared to do it in your own hive in the next couple months. We will cover organic treatment methods like drone comb frames, oxalic & formic acid treatment.
