Eugene Brown and Davie Simpson will be presenting the findings of the bee yard study funded by the grant from the Pesticide Environmental Trust Fund on January 25th in Raleigh.
SCBA was awarded a grant in early 2020 that allowed us to create a bee yard with 30 hives. [ see more about grant here ] The grant was through NC Pesticide Environmental Trust Fund and tested the use of bee hive enclosures to help with the survival of bees where heavy pesticides were being used. The testing is complete and the results have been submitted.
The information will be presented at the January regular meeting, so please come to that meeting and support the project.
