February 15th — How happy bee stomachs keep hives healthy!

Our speakers at the February 15th meeting will be Slava and Vera Strogolov, founders of Strong Microbials. Their presentation will focus on honey bee gut microbiota – what it is, what it does, and how it’s maintained. They’ll also talk about beekeeping practices that impact the microbiota, the role of bacteria in the health of a honey bee colony, and explain how you can find out what the gut health of your bees is and what you can do to improve it. Strong Microbials has presented at local, state, national and international conferences and we’re looking forward to their presentation.
