We’ll be taking a bus to two wineries and a meadery. We’ll enjoy a picnic lunch, and taste honeys, wines and meads along the way. More information and registration can be found at http://conta.cc/2bssmPa

Cost is $35.00, which includes transportation, a picnic lunch sponsored by STL Bees and Schnucks, and tastings at all three locations. But sign up now, as seating is limited!

As most beekeepers know, the Varroa mite continues to be the most serious threat to honeybee populations in the United States and most of the world. The Honey Bee Health Coalition has just released “Tools for Varroa Management – A Guide to Effective Varroa Sampling & Control”. Drafted under the direction of University of Delaware Professor Dewey M. Caron, this 24-page document draws on the expertise of a variety of industry leaders, and provides comprehensive information on diagnosis and treatment options for this ubiquitous pest. The full guide can be accessed by clicking here.
