If you’re a beekeeper then you know that there’s always more questions than answers when it comes to honey bees. Is there a specific question that’s keeping you up at night? Join us for a virtual beekeeping Q & A session with Randy Oliver on Wednesday, October 7th from 6-8pm. After registering for the event, you’ll get a confirmation email with a Zoom link and a form to submit your question before the session. The deadline to submit your questions is Sunday, October 4th.

Randy Oliver owns and operates a small commercial beekeeping enterprise in the foothills of Grass Valley in Northern California. He and his two sons manage about 1500 colonies for migratory pollination and produce queens, nucs, and honey. He has over 50 years of practical beekeeping experience, plus holds B.S. and M.S. degrees in Biological Sciences. Randy researches, analyzes, and digests beekeeping information from all over the world in order to not only broaden his own depth of understanding and knowledge, but to develop practical solutions to many of today’s beekeeping problems, which he then shares with other beekeepers through his various articles in bee magazines, his speaking engagements worldwide, and on his website:
