2016 Advanced Beekeeping Class Flyer

Wes and Wanda Johnston live in Ferrelview, MO very near the Kansas City airport.
Wes is the Midwestern Beekeepers Association's Treasurer and Wanda is the
2nd VP/ Membership Chair.
Wanda is the former Missouri State Beekeepers Association's Honey
Queen Chair from 2013 through 2015.
Wes and Wanda have helped Dean Sanders with the Missouri State Beekeepers
fair booth in Sedalia, MO, for the past three years.
They have been keeping bees for 6 years. Currently they have 4 hives and 6 nucleus colonies.
They are involved with ten different beekeeping organizations.
This year, through the Youth Scholarship Program from Midwestern Beekeepers,
they have taken on the responsibility of teaching beekeeping to a twelve year old girl.
Small hive beetle has proven to be a real problem in our part of the state so
Wes was asked to give a program to Midwestern Beekeepers on this topic.
Wes will give that program May 2 in Macon.
Wanda became interested in treating for varroa mites with oxalic acid when it became legal
to use in March 2015.
She has read extensively on oxalic acid and has treated 45 hives so far.
She has decided that sublimation is her treatment of choice for varroa mites.
