****Your bees have varroa mites!, they are the primary threat to honey bees,
it is your responsibility to check how many your bees have, to assess colony health. It is easy and simple to do, but very important even if you do not treat.
Welcome and thank you for participating in the New York Bee Wellness Workshop program-
Beekeeping is a challenging vocation; recognizing and diagnosing honeybee disease is important to maintaining healthy bee hives.
* Recommended: Chapters 13 & 14 from The Beekeepers Handbook 4th Edition (Sammataro & Avitabile)-NOTE-this is not on the web page;
NOTE: Please be sure to reduce the PDFs to 100% or less. If you have trouble opening the links, you may need a new version of Adobe Reader, available at http://get.adobe.com/reader.
Please familiarize yourself with the material; take notes and copies as needed for preparation for any workshops you may attend, or for general use for your practical beekeeping skills. There are several self graded quizzes as aids for preparation.
