This month is AFB awareness month!

As hobbyist beekeepers it is our responsibility to know and manage honeybee diseases. During this meeting we will talk about Bee Diseases and Management Protocols using live polls again*. We will list and talk about every diseases, before to focus on American Fould brood (AFB) as it is extremely important to manage it properly to avoid its spread. Not to be missed to keep your hive(s) and other nearby bees healthy and thriving.

Our guest speaker is Dr. Andrew Barron from Macquarie University. Andrew Barron is a internationally recognised researcher interested in the neuroscience behind animal behaviours (neuroethology). His aims are to understand how complex behaviours can be generated from a tiny brain, he chose to use the honey bee as a model to study these questions. Andrew also cares for bee protection and focus some of his reserach on stress mechanisms and collaborates with US agricultural department to study colony collapse. A fantastic passionated speaker, not to be missed!

As usual we will also answer any questions you will have around native or european bee management. There are never stupid questions, we aim to educate everybody. Sydney bee club is a fantastic environment to meet, exchange and learn from other beekeepers, around our usual cup of tea and snacks!

We look forward to seeing you there!
