Discussions regarding beekeeping best management practices with an emphasis on varroa. Hosted by NCDA Apiary Inspector Lewis Cauble
Dr. Wally Thurman
Ag Economist Dr. Wally Thurman went looking for effects of Colony Collapse Disorder in the market place after it's onset in the bee season of 2006-2007. He looked at pollination prices, bee prices, and other indicators in the market that one might expect to see during a crisis. Join me today as we discover and discuss what he found.
Jim Masucci penned a fantastic article in the December 2019 American Bee Journal entitled "Managing Varroa Mites: Lessons Learned from Large Scale Honey Bee Field Trials". Join as we take a deep dive in to his work.
Dr. Katie Lee from Bee Informed Partnership and Univ of Mn
Dr. Lee's long-term goal is to conduct research that generates practical information for beekeepers. In today's episode we discuss some of her work from 2010 and more recently that does just that.
Dr. Gloria DeGrandi-Hoffman
We talk mites, monitoring, late season infestation, and nutrition.
Dr. Jamie Ellis
Dr. Ellis discusses the doom and gloom surrounding bees in the media and the things we can do to improve bee health. Visit The University of Florida Honey Bee Research and Extension Lab. Support the lab by donating.

Great Podcast for NC
Great podcast for NC beekeepers and beyond! Extremely informative, practical, useful talks. Expert guests with great perspectives. Wish there were more episodes.
Great information and guest, highly recommend this as a supplement for bee learning experience in these socially distancing times.
Why have a guest speaker if you are going to tell her what she wrote? All she does in this is agree with your recap of her work. I want to hear her. Ask questions! The information is useful but the presentation is frustrating.
