Event description
The importance of being able to diagnose queen problems in honey bee colonies

About this Event

Cambridgeshire Beekeepers' Association are delighted to welcome Dr David Tarpy from the US to give us some practical advice—based on his empirical research—from looking at different symptoms and attributing whether or not the problem in one's own honey bee colony is really the queen’s fault or possibly something else. Do we blame the queen more often than we should?

About the speaker

David Tarpy is a Professor of Entomology and the Extension Apiculturist at North Carolina State University. His research interests focus on the biology and behaviour of honey bee queens in order to better improve the overall health of queens and their colonies. More recently, his laboratory group has focused on the reproductive potential of commercially produced queens, testing their genetic diversity and mating success in an effort to improve queen quality.
