May 2019 Meeting Education

During the May 2109 meeting of the Brown County Beekeepers Association attendees were treated to two informative talks related to honey bees. The bee clubs goal is to provide timely, accurate, and interesting education at each meeting. All persons interested in bees and beekeeping are invited to attend.

Kaelyn presenting her glucose study

Kaelyn Sumner Pulaski FFA Student Advisor. She presented her science fair project that she will be taking to state level. Her goal was to determine if location or geographic location impacted glucose levels in honey. She had over 60 honey samples from all across the United States and even one from Canada. One of her biggest challenges was finding the correct dilution of the honey to determine glucose levels. Surprisingly, she found that geographic location did NOT impact glucose levels in honey. Thank you for your work and for sharing with our club. Kaelyn will be presenting her project to State – Wisconsin Convention as one of the five top projects.

Slava Strogolov CEO of Strong Microbials Inc. presented information about Honey Bee nutrition using pre-biotics and strong microbials to promote bee health, reproduction and longevity. He explained the positive impact of using pre-biotics on Foul Brood, Chalk Brood, other diseases and pesticides and insecticides. Attendees had the opportunity to buy his product DFM.
