Beekeeping in Vermont

If you missed yesterday's presentations at the "Winter" Meeting of the Vermont Beekeepers Association (or if you'd like to view them again) we've posted the meeting presentations online for members to view. Login to the site and look under the Calendar menu for Past Workshop & Events Recordings.

Keynote Speaker Dr. Robyn Underwood from Penn State University presents The COMB Project: A comparison of Conventional and Organic Management of Bees focusing on Varroa control methods and their impacts on colony health and economics. This session begins with Vermont State Apiculturist Brooke Decker's report to the membership followed by Dr. Underwood's presentation. (This presentation will be available online, courtesy of Dr. Underwood, for two weeks.)

Our afternoon speaker, Matthew Hoepfinger from the Bee Informed Partnership presents Integrating the Organic Treatment, oxalic acid, into Varroa Control management strategies.
