Selina Bruckner of the Lopez Uribe Lab spoke to our group on 8/17. She presented the data developed by Robyn Underwood and others evaluating three somewhat typical approaches to keeping bees.

This is the middle way between ‘Chemical Free’ and ‘Conventional’ approaches. Selina also touched on the work she is undertaking with the Lopez Uribe Lab. We had fabulous door prizes including a 10 Pack of Formic Pro and a collection of colorful trucker hats from Mann Lake. Winners will be able to collect their prize at Honey Fest or a future in person event/meeting. Our winners were: Share this stuff:TwitterFacebookEmailPrintLinkedInRedditLike this:Like Loading…
