Dr. Lynn Royce will be talking about honey bee queens at this months meeting of the WVBA. Many commercial, sideline, and hobby beekeepers will be in attendance. Dr. Royce, since retiring as an entomologist at O.S.U. has formed a very successful queen rearing business: Mitebee Farms. She has been heavily involved with the 2001 Russian Queen project and is so until today. Additionally, she breeds the SMR/ Minnesota Hygienic that is showing real tangible results in pest and disease control. Dr. Royce uses NO treatments in her apiaries. This is the basis of her business. If you have any questions about queens, introduction, of ? don't miss this meeting.
