Just a quick post about an upcoming meeting on Monday, July 9 at KCC. KBEE and the KCC Apiary Program in partnership with the HDOA’s State Apiary Program invite you to attend a presentation by HI State Apiarist Danielle Downey. Ms Downey will address the current efforts to mitigate the harmful impacts of small hive beetle. In addition, Danielle will also share information about American Foul Brood, a very serious and harmful brood disease responsible for decimating Hawaii’s honeybee population in the early part of the 20th century. Small Hive Beetle was recently found on Kaua’i and evidence of AFB was found on Maui during recent inspections by HDOA Apiary Program staff. The presentation will begin at 6pm in the ETRO Multipurpose Room (ETRO Rm114) located in the Electronic Technology Building at Kaua’i Community College. A question and answer session will follow Ms. Downey’s presentation. For more information about this upcoming meeting contact Jimmy Trujillo @ 346 7725.
