May 2014 Honey Bee Health Fair

WCOBA is pleased to present a special event for our May meeting.  Please join us at 6:30 PM on May 22, 2014 in Urbana, OH for our first Honey Bee Health Fair.  Barbara Bloetscher, Ohio state apiarist, will return to WCOBA for an interactive discussion on the major health issues impacting Ohio bees and beekeepers starting at 6:30 pm. During the Health Fair we'll cover a variety of topcs focused on specific bee diseases, pests, and health issues.  Some of areas of discussion will include:

* Varroa Mite
* Small Hive Beetle
* Nosema
* European Foulbrood and Idiopathic Brood Disease Syndrome
* American Foul Brood
* and more

We will also show a few examples of Nosema spore count checks.  If you are interested in having a hive sampled for Nosema spore counts please bring a sample size of about 30 dead bees preserved in alcohol in a zipped plastic bag.  The number of samples we inspect will depend on available time.
