Episode 246: Pests and Diseases - Part 2

Beekeeping - Short and Sweet

Mar 12 2023 • 17 mins

In this week's Podcast: In my last podcast I was discussing the more serious honeybee diseases AFB and EFB. This time it's the turn of the not-so-tricky pests and diseases such as Chalkbrood, Wax Moth and also possibly the biggest threat to our colonies the Varroa Mite.

Hi, I’m Stewart Spinks and welcome to Episode 246 of my podcast, Beekeeping Short and Sweet.
