June Monthly Meeting

June 13, 2023 @ 6:15 pm – 8:15 pm
Dr. David T. Peck, Director of Research and Education at Betterbee will discuss treatment options for Varroa mites.

Dr. Peck's doctoral work in Cornell University's Department of Neurobiology and Behavior focused on the transmission of mites between bee colonies, as well as the mite-resistance traits of the untreated honey bees living in Cornell's Arnot Forest. After earning his degree, he has continued to research varroa/bee interactions, including fieldwork in Newfoundland, Canada (where varroa still have not arrived) and Anosy Madagascar (where varroa arrived only in 2010 or 2011).

Dr. Peck is currently the Director of Research and Education at Betterbee in Greenwich, NY, where he assists in product development and research, and also teaches classes and develops scientifically-sound educational materials.

Dr. Peck has kept bees for more than a decade, though his home apiary is often full of mite-riddled research colonies so he doesn't usually produce much honey!

Join us at our monthly meetings to learn more about bees and beekeeping. Meetings are FREE!
