Do Dead-outs Mean a Dead-end? No Way!
In this presentation, Dr. Skyrm will share updates on the Apiary Program and how best to inspect and work with your apiary inspector to evaluate winter mortality and colony deaths.
Guest Presenter: Dr. Kim Skyrm: East Director of the Apiary Inspectors of America (AIA) and the Chief Apiary Inspector for the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources (MDAR).
Dr. Skyrm has always been driven by an intense love of bees to serve in supporting roles informed by the latest scientific research. This is evident since Kim has been working with native and managed bees, beekeepers, farmers, and pesticide applicators for the past 14 years through outreach education, research, and extension. Dr. Skyrm has a “bees-eye view” of the world and is truly passionate about continuing to do work that preserves the viability and sustainability of bee populations!
