Mysteries and Management of Laying Workers with Dr. Jon Zawislak
Dr Zawislak discusses what happens when the order of a bee colony breaks down. What compels workers to begin laying eggs? What happens when they do? What can a beekeeper do to correct things in the hive?
Time & Location

Dr. Zawislak will discuss the effects of queen loss and the development of laying workers which can effectively doom a hive. He bring his experience as both a beekeeper and as a scientist to provide a clear perspective for hive management.
