July 2024 Monthly Meeting

July 9 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Our guest speaker this month will be Jim Masucci, talking about Varroa Management.  Jim is local to the St. Louis area and is both a honey bee researcher and sideliner.  As a researcher Jim ran some of the largest field trials ever to develop new varroa control products for Monsanto/Bayer.  This experience allowed him to work with some of the top commercial beekeepers in the US and Canada.  Recently retired, Jim works full time on his honey bee business, mainly focusing on nucs and honey production.  He is up to 200 production hives and 70 nucs, but the lure of pollination is ever present.  Jim has written about his transition to full time beekeeping in BeeCulture magazine.  He continues to consult and run field trials for Greenlight Biosciences in their effort to bring a RNAi-based varroa control product to the market.

The EMBA will provide a selection of light desserts before the meeting at 6:30 pm, the presentation will start at 7:00 pm.  Our meetings are open to everyone.  See you there!
