Wednesday February 16th 2022 7.30pm.  BBKA lecture – The effect of Viruses on Bees – Prof. Dr. Robert Paxton

VIRUSES ARE KILLING OUR BEES , this lecture is an insight into the way they affect bees and the research that has shown their impact on our colonies.

Prof. Dr. Robert Paxton,  Martin-Luther-University, Halle-Wittenberg, will be lecturing on viruses in bees. He is a leading world authority on the effect of viruses on Bees.  He will be using some of his own research material and that of his group and giving a valuable insight into both his own and his group’s research results.

Viruses are probably the most serious threat to honey bees worldwide, Prof. Paxton’s research will contribute to understanding the impact they have on bees and other species and how they may be controlled.

This lecture will be valuable for all beekeepers and those taking modules next month may find it particularly interesting and helpful.

Numbers are limited so access will be on a ‘first come first served’ basis. A recording of the lecture will be available on the BBKA website at a later date.
