How to Sample for Varroa Mites
Andy Westrich will host a field day Saturday, 23 July at St. Georges Brewery in Hampton. Andy will talk about methods of sampling for Varroa mite loads within colonies and IPM controls to implement with the results obtained.
We are a group of beekeepers from the Peninsula and Middle Peninsula areas of Virginia. Members range from as far south as Hampton, to as far north as Middlesex, to as far east as Mathews and all points between. Our purposes are many:
*Enjoying the wonders of nature
*Fostering the keeping, efficient management, and preservation of honey bees
*Providing pollination for local agriculture
*Informing members and our communities of the ecological and economic benefits of honey bees
*Educating members in the science and techniques of apiculture (Being "beekeepers" and not "bee-havers")
Regular meetings are held the 3rd Tuesday of each month, from 7 PM to 9 PM, in the Fellowship Hall of St. Luke's United Methodist Church in Yorktown, VA.
