Next GGLBA Meeting Tuesday May 14th, 2019 7:00pm

Join us at the Saint Mary’s Community Library on Tuesday, May 14th, from 7-9pm.  Everyone’s welcome!

The guest speaker this month will be Alex Zomchek from Miami University in Oxford. Alex  Zomchek is a honey bee researcher at Miami University’s Ecology Research Center located in Oxford, OH (the birthplace of Langstroth’s modern, movable frame beehive).  He is a lifelong beekeeper and aside from teaching and research, he is an active lecturer and public speaker, and recent recipient of the Eastern Apicultural Society North America’s Divelbiss Award for outstanding apiculture contributions.  Alex will cover; Honey bees are ancient, elegant stimulus-response bundles.  Understanding just a few simple anatomy and physiology features not only answers a few of those nagging “Why do they do that?” questions; but will also make you a better beekeeper.  We will discuss the hows and whys of under mating; bee feet and small hive beetle; bee fat and hot/cold regulation together with a new use for car windshield reflectors; bee life spans – making the right age bees for the right times; bee casts and their role in pests and diseases management; and more.
