Brood missing along foundation wires

On Thursday, March 9th, OCBA will be joined by Dr. Kaira Wagoner, a post-doctoral fellow with Dr. Olav Rueppell’s lab at UNC-Greensboro. Kaira will discuss the negative effects of using steel foundation wire. She will also talk about her recent discovery of a chemical associated with hygienic behavior, which is the ability of nurse bees to detect, open, and clean cells containing varroa-infected pupae.
