The Virginia State Beekeepers Association Meeting is less than 2 hour drive for most of us at Blue Ridge Community College in Weyer’s Cave, VA.  A great speaker line up is in store this year.  Saturday November 4th.  Vendors too!

Speakers include: Erin MacGregor-Forbes, Chairman of the Eastern Apicultural Society will present “No-graft Queen Rearing” for those wishing to explore more sustainable beekeeping practices and “Organizing a Second Year Bee School” to share methods for arranging club-level education beyond the beginner level.

Mike Embrey, University of Maryland (retired) will present “Small Hive Beetles, Then and Now” gleaned from his years of experience as the Program Manager for the Eastern Shore Apiculture Program in Maryland.

Dr. James Wilson, Virginia Cooperative Extension’s Extension Apiculturist, will share his doctoral research “Integrating Pest Management in Virginia Cucurbit Production: An Example for Virginia Beekeepers” demonstrating practical methods for mitigating pesticide exposure to honey bee colonies.
