December 10th - Regular meeting

Dr. Zachary (Zac) Huang - Honey Bee Pheromones - There is more than just queen pheromones at work in the hive. Come learn what they are and how they impact the hive.

Dr. Huang is an associate professor in entomology at the Michigan State University. His main responsibilities include research, extension, and teaching. He is known for developing the social inhibition model (at UIUC) which explains how nurse to forager transition is regulated, the mitezapper (MSU) which is a non-chemical control for the infamous Varroa destructor. Dr. Huang has been a regular presenter at COMB and you may be familiar with his pictures of bees.

There will be a beginning beekeepers question and answer session from 6:00-6:30 in the classroom area.
