In 2018 Dr. Spivak embarked on a journey to identify honey bees for survival and mite-resistance. Beginning with a blend of vetted survival genetics in four maternal lines she later added Russian, POL, and Caucasian stocks in 2019. In 2020 she brought in HILO and Saskatraz, 2021 more POL and Saskatraz, and in 2022 a combination of survivors from the program that have now comprised local mating stocks.
Dr. Spivak will give us an update on the 2022-2023 season, discuss progress, and offer insights into her successes and failures with an opportunity for Q&A.
Please only choose one delineation amount as multiples will create multiple registrations.
See you then!
