 "High Tech Approaches to Controlling Viruses and Mites"

The Oglethorpe County Bee Club will be in person with  Zoom support. The link will be sent through email.
 

 The meeting is in person at the Farm Bureau, 925 Athens Rd., Crawford, Ga.  We will start mingling at 6:30 PM with a talk at 7 PM about novel mite and viral treatments using RNA interference by Cory Momany.  While we will make an effort to run ZOOM in the Farm Bureau using their WiFi, no guarantees!  Please consider wearing masks to protect one another.  We will have a supply of extra masks on hand to share.
