On October 24th we were treated to a presentation by Gerald Hayes, nationally recognized figure in beekeeping across the country. His appearance was funded by the FDLTCC Environmental studies department. His presentation detailed some of the the most advanced technical changes in the beekeeping industry. Specifically he discussed the use of a technology called RNAi that could replace the use of pesticides to control varroa mites.
Those of you who attended the presentation in person may wish to watch it again to catch things that you may have missed.
If you were unable to join us that night, you will really want to watch this video.
Our thanks go out to Courtney and her students for making this recording available.
