Monday, April 20, 2020 at 1:00pm to 2:30pm

They’re back by popular demand! Kim and Jen dive deeper into managing the most detrimental pest affecting honey bees, varroa mites (Varroa destructor). Join them in this multiple part webinar series where they will discuss the varroa mite biology and life history, available and effective mite management tools, how to create a dynamic varroa mite IPM plan, and a demonstration on the steps involved in performing an alcohol wash in the field including tips to make sure you get an accurate count. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and get real live support needed to jump start your thinking and planning for mite management this season. These presentations will be tailored to current and future beekeepers, but others with interest in honey bee health are also encouraged to attend! Join Kim and Jen and let’s FIGHT THE MITE!
