Beekeepers Q & A
There will not be a Beekeepers Q & A in August
Welcome to the Medina County Beekeepers Association's website. We hope you enjoy your time here and can find what you want about bees and beekeeping.
MCBA has a strong mentoring tradition. If you are interested in learning more in a one-on-one setting, go to our online mentor list and give a call to one of our volunteers. Be sure to read the expectations of a mentee so you can get the most out of the experience.
If you are interested in serving as a mentor, please also go the the mentor list and add yourself to the page. Thanks for volunteering.

USDA Honey bee Disease Diagnostic Services
USDA Honey Bee Disease Diagnostic Services, Beltsville MD is back up and running.
The USDA-ARS is extremely pleased to welcome Samuel Abban to the Bee Diagnostic Service.
Mr. Abban has ten years experience with honey bee disease diagnostics and research and he will ably run this program. Sam will board July 10, 2017 and with assistance from Bee Research laboratory staff will begin analyzing past and future samples submitted to the service. We will focus on brood samples as a means of addressing concerns over foulbrood disease and antibiotic prescriptions.
Please be patient as we dig through a substantial backlog of samples, but our aim is to strengthen the USDA Disease Diagnostic Service for another 100 years.
Finally, words can’t describe our thanks to the Bee Informed partnership for their support of Sam and bee diagnostics while we waited for an opportunity to bring Sam onboard with USDA.
