What's Up With Honeybee Health?

Honey bee health continues to be a hot topic for beekeepers and concerned citizens. Scott Guiser, beekeeper of 40 years and former Penn State Extension Educator, will provide an overview of this fascinating insect and give an update on honey bee health. Tips on useful things you can do for this, and other pollinators, as well as leads to the best sources of accurate information will be discussed.
