Varroa Mites: Looking at how Bees Might Win this War – Nancy Ruppert
Join NCDA & CS Apiary Inspector Nancy Ruppert as she reviews where we’ve been, where we are now, and what the future holds in the ongoing battle against the deadly varroa mite. This presentation includes the foundation of varroa management, but also looks at what real long-term hope might look like if we’re ever going to gain ground for our bees to overcome varroa.

Nancy has been an apiary inspector for NCDA & CS since August of 2010, with a particular interest in honey bee nutrition, infectious diseases, and reducing stress in honey bee colonies. Prior to that, she served rural North Carolinians as a family nurse practitioner in a variety of settings, engaging in health care service delivery for people with all levels of wellness and illness needs. She has maintained an active registered nurse license in NC for over 30 years.
