Advanced Integrated Pest Management
The Advanced IPM workshop will go beyond the content of TTP’s original IPM course. Having completed the original IPM for Beekeeping workshop is a prerequisite for this workshop. Having equivalent experience and familiarity with the current pests and diseases that affect honey bees in Ontario will be considered.
Workshop attendees will learn, in detail, the biology and life cycles of honey bee pests and disease in respect to colony management. The nuances and diagnosis of important pests and diseases and their lifecycle throughout beekeeping seasons will familiarize beekeepers with pest and disease both immediately and long term.
This workshop does not involve any field related activities. There will be lab work and interactive assesment techniques practice within the classroom.
