Ontario Honey Bee Breeders selecting for Mite & Disease Resistance

In Ontario, several bee breeders have been selecting their stock for resistance traits since 1992. Being a part of a bee breeding program requires dedication, diligence, financial input, time and labour. Selecting bees for resistance traits within the ORHBS Program necessitates teamwork between the bee breeders of Ontario and the Ontario Beekeepers’ Association (OBA) Tech-Transfer Program.
