Have honey bees? If yes, this presentation is for you! Join Kim and Jen to get the latest update on national and regional trends in honey bee health along with the tools necessary for managing the most detrimental pest affecting honey bees, varroa mites (Varroa destructor). They will discuss the life history, monitoring, and management techniques involved with varroa mite control. Participants will also be led through a real-life case study to allow for a better understanding of how to monitor mite populations, determine the signs of a high varroa mite level, diversity of treatment options available and action steps to take after treatment to ensure efficacy. This presentation will provide the most direct benefit to beekeepers or those wishing to become a future beekeeper, but others with interest in honey bee health are also encouraged to attend!
