    Event Details:

    We will be launching a new initiative that will bring together beekeepers from local clubs to network and share their experiences. This will eventually incorporate online, face to face events and conversations.

    As we move into unknown territory with Varroa management – the purpose of the initiative is to learn as much as we can about the Varroa mite and to make sure that we consider the 'bees' in our choices.
    To be inclusive we will be looking at all types of hives and the best practices for managing varroa with chemical and non-chemical treatments.

    We will be engaging with bee experts, academics and various institutions and government departments to learn as much as we can. We may even decide to perform some scientific studies on the management practices we could apply. Not only are we going to be learning, but we may also discover new approaches along the way.

    This is a chance for you to share your thoughts.

    This event is free but please register - so we know how many people are attending.

    Bring an open mind, your ABA registration name badge if have one and a plate of food to share.
