Webinar: The Buzz at OSC - Skunks in the Bee Yard

OSU Extension, Department of Entomology   

Wednesday, August 21st at 9AM (ET)  12PM (PT) for our next webinar: 
 
Skunk Behavior in the Bee Yard with Dr. Mark Headings  
 

Your bee losses may be due to more than you think. Have you ever observed an abrupt decline in the bee population in a given hive without seeing a lot of dead bees inside? The bees that remain may seem especially aggressive. Or, maybe you've seen the grass matted down or disturbed in front of the hive?  

If you've seen scratch marks around the entrance of the hive, especially on the bottom board, or you've actually seen a skunk in your bee yard eating your bees, you could be dealing with a skunk problem. Join Mark for our August webinar to learn more about skunks as well as the options to resolve this predator problem.

Webinar: The Buzz at OSC - "Green" Honey Harvesting

OSC Webinar: Wednesday, July 17th at 9AM (Eastern) - 6AM (Pacific)
 

"Green" Honey Harvesting with Alex Zomchek.

Alex has been a beekeeper for 40+ years and is an active researcher, lecturer, and instructor.  He is the apiculturist for Miami University and a Master Beekeeper Instructor with the Ohio State Beekeepers Association.

"Green" Honey Harvesting is intended as a whimsical yet purposeful play on unique honeys, honey harvesting and processing.  There are literally green colored honeys from various thistle plants.  Unripened honey is sometimes referred to as "green".  Alex will discuss how to properly assess if your honey is ripe enough for extraction using the shake method and the more sophisticated refractometer.  Lastly, he will discuss using "green" energy tips and tricks to process honey and wax including building a solar wax melter and using your car to decrystallize honey and remove the bloom from wax candles.
