About the event

This will be an In-person meeting of the BVABA.  We will meet at 7PM and normally wrap up around 9PM.

We will cover club business for a short part of the meeting and then have an educational presentation for the remainder of the meeting.

Come and socialize, network and learn with other area beekeepers.

Tonight we will have Dr. Tracy Farane, DVM from Grove City College talking about small hive beetles.

Dr. Tracy Farone, DVM is a Professor of Biology at Grove City College in Pennsylvania. She has worked in various areas of private practice, academia, and/or research for over 23 years.

Since late 2016, Dr. Farone has been researching beekeeping and bee medicine. She was granted a sabbatical to allow additional time to pursue apicultural studies and develop a teaching and research apiary at her college. In 2019, Dr. Farone worked in the field with dozens of back yard, sideline, commercial beekeepers, and bee researchers, both in the US and in Europe.

Dr. Farone gives bee lectures for universities, veterinary associations, and various bee clubs around the country. She has published several articles on bee medicine, including a monthly “Bee Vet” series for Bee Culture, written biosecurity industry guidelines for veterinarians entering bee yards in the US, and developed an educational website, https://www.gccbeeproject.com/. Dr. Farone’s work and publications have also been featured in the JAVMA and Veterinary Clinics. She is consulting nationally and internationally with industry stakeholders, and manages two honey bee yards and a PSU pollinator friendly garden with the help of her research students.
