Ian Steppler added hygienic behaviour testing of his breeder colonies to his KRTP monitoring program sampling. Here we describe the process of hygienic behaviour testing with the KRTP. See the Bee Health Monitoring Program registration form to sign up!
Originally recorded as a demonstration video for veterinarian training purposes, this video shows some of the classic symptoms of American Foulbrood in a live honey bee colony, as well as how to prepare a frame sample to submit to Veterinary Diagnostic Services for analysis.
Registration is now open for the 2022 beekeeping season. The Bee Health Monitoring Program is open to all registered beekeepers in Manitoba and aims to increase the accessibility of diagnostic services offered through Veterinary Diagnostic Services in Winnipeg as well as the National Bee Diagnostic Centre in Beaverlodge, AB. Hygienic behaviour testing is also available again for the 2022 season. Please review the registration form for more details and contact Derek with any questions about the program.
The KRTP is searching for a qualified Field/Laboratory Technician for the upcoming 2022 season. Please see the Job Advertisement PDF for details.
