OSU Webinar “American Foulbrood” Jim Tew 5/20


Jim Tew, Extension Specialist with Alabama Cooperative Extension Service will lead our next webinar on American foulbrood at 9AM Eastern on May 20th.

American foulbrood is a traditional, well established honey bee disease. In recent times, CCD and predaceous mite invasions have stolen some of the glamour from this bacterial disease, but that does not mean that it should be ignored. This webinar will cover the effects of American foulbrood (AFB), its general spread, its appearance and what – if anything – can be done to contain its spread. There is no need to fear AFB, but it must be respected.

All webinars are free, and registration is not required. Webinars run from 9:00AM to 10:00AM Eastern.
All webinars will be recorded and archived on the Bee Lab website.
Hope to “see” you this month!
