Dr. Dewey Caron has been working to help educate beekeepers for years starting with his work with Dr. Roger Morse (Cornell) and Eastern Apiculture Society (EAS). He helped to establish the EAS Master Beekeeper Certification program and has worked with other regional beekeeper groups to set up their own. Now that he lives on the West Coast in Portland, Oregon, he is learning the trials and tribulations of the beekeeping in the Pacific Northwest.
In this podcast, Dewey talks about the different Master Beekeeper Certification programs and his move to Portland. We also learn about his family's beekeeping experience with africanized honey bees in Bolivia.
Last, but certainly not least, Dewey talks about the importance of the Honey Bee Health Coalition, the Mite-a-thon and the free resources the Coalition makes available for beekeepers.
