The NorthWest District Beekeepers Association is proud to announce that we are bringing Randy Oliver of scientificbeekeeping.com to speak in Everett, WA on Saturday September 9th 2017. Randy is a commercial beekeeper in California, a careful researcher, and the author of a monthly column in American Bee Journal. It has been a long standing goal of NWDBA to bring Randy Oliver here for a speaking engagement and to make it available to as many beekeepers as possible. The research that Randy does is incredibly useful, and he is a tremendously engaging speaker. Doors will open at 12:30 PM and the talk will run from 1-5 PM, with a couple of intermissions. We have a limit of 300 seats and anticipate selling out, so please buy your tickets early.
The topics to be covered will be “Reading the combs to understand colony conditions over the season” and also Randy’s recent research on varroa mite management including the most current information on his experiments using oxalic acid applied dissolved in glycerin. Definitely bring your note pads and an extra pen in case you run out of ink!
Location: Everett PUD Auditorium, 2320 California St, Everett, WA 98201
