UC Davis Department of Entomology Newsletter Sept/Oct 2014

from the U.C. APIARIES University of California Sept/Oct 2014  "Hello" from Elina" 

Hello California!
Dear California beekeepers,

I am truly thrilled to be the new Assistant Extension Specialist in Apiculture here at UC Davis and I can’t wait for us to get better acquainted. I know, I know, I have some big shoes to fill, but I’m thinking I have the next 38 years to do so. My official start date was September 1, 2014 so as you can imagine I barely had the time to learn how to get from my lab at Briggs Hall to my office at the Harry H. Laidlaw Jr. Research Facility. Despite the short time I’ve been here, I’ve had the pleasure of already meeting some of CA beekeepers. But until I get to meet you all, I will share a few words about myself, starting at the very beginning.

UC Davis Department of Entomology Newsletter for July/August 2014

from the U.C. Apiaries   By Dr. Eric Mussen    July/August 2014

With the permission of Dr. Eric Mussen, we have attached latest newsletter:"from the U.C. Apiaries," the U.C. Davis Department of Entomology July/August 2014 Apiary Newsletter.

"This is the last newsletter for which I will be solely responsible.  Our newly acquired Extension Apiculturist, Dr. Elina Nino, will decide shortly on how she will handle the newsletter business, but I will keep the list available for her use.  Unlike Dr. Malcolm Sanford, I am signing off.  So, Malcolm your “Apis” newsletter will outlast my nearly 39-year run.

I wish everyone the best of luck in all your beekeeping and bee-related endeavors in the future."  Eric.

UC Davis Department of Entomology Apiary Newsletter July/Aug 2013

From Dr. Eric Mussen, Apiculturist and Editor, U.C. Apiaries, University of California, July/Aug 2013 Apiary Newsletter

Hi, Folks, I hope your beekeeping year has been more successful, from a honey crop standpoint, than most of California. Continued drought is really hurting our bees.

Also, before I forget to do it, I wish to extend my heartfelt thanks to Kathy Keatley Garvey for the marvelous job she has been doing editing my bi-monthly offerings. She has writing expertise which she brings to bear on my articles, and she has a really fun, daily blog called “Bug Squad.” Her topics vary, but often have something to do with insects or other nature items, especially honey bees.  Her gorgeous photographs accompany her entries. Take a look – you’ll enjoy her efforts.

The ABC's of the Bee-a-Thon (August 21, 2013)

Bug Squad - Happenings in the Insect World   By Kathy Keatley Garvey   8/20/13

What Emmet Brady describes as "the wonderful world of pollination" will come to life on Wednesday, Aug. 21. 

Brady, a cultural entomologist, hosts the Insect News Network on KDRT 97.4 FM Radio, Davis, and every year he hosts a "Bee-a-Thon" to spotlight honey bees.

So, get ready for Bee-a-Thon 3!

The free multimedia event will beginonline with a series of videos about honey bees and other members of the Microcosm, including videos created by Brady and clips from previous Bee-a-Thons... 

Read more and get the full schedule...

“The interdependence we have with insects — especially bees — is profound and complex and most people are only discussing half the story," said Brady, who holds a bachelor’s degree in biology from Hiram (Ohio) College. "The key word is biocomplexity — how human behavior fits into the global ecology. It’s also about how insects inspire and amaze our society. That will all be covered on the show.”

Brady described the Bee-a-Thon as timely; Time magazine just published a cover story on  “beepocalpyse.”
