Additional Information from Past Meetings
Dr. Meghan Milbrath from the MSU Department of Entomology and coordinator of the Michigan Pollinator Initiative presented "Varroa mite plan" - A plan for detecting and combating the Varroa mites in our hives! You can find much of the information from Meghan's presentation and additional information on Varroa control at the Michigan Pollinator Initiative website under Beekeepers and Varroa. The information under the Resources section is especially helpful. Two very helpful documents are Planning for Varroa and Tools for Varroa Management.
