NBU inspectors demonstrate inspection for and recognition of bee pests and diseases (including AFB and EFB)
At University of Bedfordshire (Bedford campus)
Polhill Ave, Bedford MK41 9EA
This is an event that all beekeeping members should attend to learn about, or refresh your knowledge on, bee pests and diseases. Even if you have attended previous similar events, you should not miss the opportunity to update your knowledge and ability to recognise exotic pests and devastating diseases. Seeing EFB and AFB infected combs at first hand so you can recognise them is so important to us all. Put the date in your diary.
The day will include:
- Latest information on exotic pests - Asian Hornet and Small Hive Beetle
- Latest information on permitted varroacides and varroa management
- Comb Workshop - examination of real infected comb (including the reportable diseases AFB and EFB)
- Inspectors demonstrating an apiary hive health inspection - how to do a thorough disease inspection
