Other Notes
Katy Evans is a graduate student at the University of Delaware who is working on a Master’s degree and her project focuses on helping the local beekeeping community reduce and better manage mite populations and varroa vectored viruses in a non-chemical fashion. She has created survey to find out the strategies beekeepers are using to control for mites. If you are so inclined to help her out, complete her survey. It should only take about 5 minutes.
