Beekeeping: Testing for Varroa Mites

Saturday, Aug 4, 2018

2:00pm – 4:00pm

It’s time for all beekeepers to start thinking about what their bees need to get them through the winter.  Join beekeepers Phil Crandall and Benjamin Westerman as they walk you through testing your honeybees for varroa mites. There will be a classroom portion followed by a session in the bee yard. Attendees are encouraged to bring a bee suit; those without a suit will only be allowed to attend the classroom session. Registration is required. The $15 fee includes a testing kit. The class is capped at 16 people (spouses or significant others are invited to attend free but will not receive a kit unless they pay/register also).
