Dr. Samuel Ramsey 

will be Presenting


Dr. Samuel Ramsey is best known for his discovery that mites ride honey bees at the bottom segments of their abdomens, between the plates.  In this location, they consume the honey bees' fat bodies.  His studies flipped the world's view of how mites infest bees and demonstrated that we don't see the majority of phoretic mites.  The consumption of fat bodies also explains why the mites devastate the bees and trigger unusual changes in their roles within the hive.

This meeting is jointly sponsored with the Eastern Piedmont Beekeepers Association,

Beginning beekeepers may join at 6:30 pm to ask questions and socialize prior to the start of the regular meeting!
