Forsyth County Beekeepers Association November Meeting - Zoom Meeting
Brief Business Meeting 6:00 pm
Speaker: Jennifer Berry, University of Georgia Honey Bee Program Apiculture Research Professional and Lab Manager
Topic: "Oxalic Acid Sublimation for Mite Control: Why, How, and When"
For over 20 years, Jennifer Berry has been the Apicultural Research Professional and Lab Manager for the University of Georgia Honey Bee Program. Her research objectives have focused on queen breeding, improving honey bee health, IPM techniques for varroa and small hive beetle control, sub-lethal effects of pesticides on beneficial insects, weeds for bees, and what best to plant in non-traditional horticultural landscapes to enhance pollinator populations and diversity.
Oxalic acid is a proven method for varroa control when done properly. We will discuss the challenges beekeepers face with varroa control methods, along with how and when to apply OA for best results.
