Both have decades of beekeeping experience and will share how to keep bees alive without treatments and give practical insight into various means of natural management.
Mr. Bush will have copies of his recent book "The Practical Beekeeper" - available for sale and signing.
We are also proud to welcome Roger Simonds, laboratory manager of the USDA National Science Laboratory - where the testing for chemical contamination of wax comb and stored pollen has been conducted.
Dr. Simonds will let us know if we have anything to be worried about.
This is another in the series of Center sponsored Events which bring exceptional honeybee experts to our area - and we are responding to requests to invite those with exceptional 'hands-on' familiarity with the bees.
We need your support if we are to continue organizing these in the future - so please turn out to give these visitors a hearty welcome and a glimpse of our area's happening 'bee scene.'
