Beekeeping: Controlling Pests Sustainably
New American Farm Conference Breakout Session
We’ve heard about the decline of honey bees. Mites and other hive pests might be contributing to the problem. New research and on-the-ground strategies are controlling pests using natural, sustainable methods.
Available speaker presentations include:
• Melanie Kirby, Zia Queenbee Co., New Mexico
• Marla Spivak, University of Minnesota
This session was part of the New American Farm Conference, held March 25-27, 2008 in Kansas City to celebrate SARE's 20th anniversary.
