Author, entomologist and beekeeper Dr. Larry Connor to present WCOBA program.
Dr. Larry Connor, author of Queen Rearing Essentials, Bee Sex Essentials, Increase Essentials, Bee-sentials and frequent contributor to the American Bee Journal and Bee Culture, is coming to Springfield, OH. Connor will present two topics on May 9, 2013 to area beekeepers. The first presentation will cover the work and importance of the juvenile honey bee exploring the role and impact of nurse bees within the colony. A second session will cover making increases through Nucs. Nucs are a valuable tool for the beekeeper interested in expansion or deadout replacements, the availability of locally adapted overwintered bees, or queen rearing.
There will be an admission charge of $15 per person for this session to cover facility rental and incidentals expenses related to the event. Fees will be collected at the entrance. Walk-ins are welcome but WCOBA would appreciate RSVPs through our online form in advance of the program to help us better plan to accommodate participants.
