UBKA Winter Webinars 2021 – “Key Concepts For Every Bee-Keeper”

Tuesday 19th January: Impact of Pesticides on Bees with Jeff Pettis

We know that pesticides in the environment can harm bees. Jeff will cover some of the ways pesticides and bees interact and a unique defence strategy that bees have to isolate contaminated pollen called entoumbed pollen. He will discuss the role of monocultures and changes needed in agriculture to protect all pollinators and the environment. 

Zoom joining details for this webinar to be published shortly.

All Webinars are FREE and will commence at 8pm with a Question & Answer session after.
