Who do Varroa really feed on? Check out this presentation where I share a new finding of Varroa destructor. I carried out three years of research, and along with collaborators (including my family!) individually inspected over 30,000 bees to describe the distribution of Varroa inside a colony.

Producing honey bee queens

I’ve been rearing my own line of open mated carniolans for years. These are docile, productive bees, that I produce for my own experiments. We can literally pet our bees during experiments. This level of docility allows us to work intimately with the bees, sitting in front of open colonies for long periods to collect samples.
