Now a bit about our speaker:
Janet Brisson and her husband Mike have been a self-sufficient family and
organic farmers for over 30 years. In 1995 they were forced to become hobbyist
beekeepers due to lack of pollination as bees were losing their fight against
the insidious Varroa mites. Horrified to discover that even the most
organic-minded beekeepers were driven to use some type of chemical to save their
bees, the Brisson' researched and started building and using screened bottom
boards along with intensive drone brood management to reduce their chemical use.
After 10 years and various adaptations of SBB's, they re-discovered using
powdered sugar as an effective way of detaching Varroa mites and have been
chemical free since the beginning of 2005. One final modification of their
screened bottom board to make using powdered sugar easy, the Brisson' developed
their product, the Country Rubes Combo Screened Bottom Board, that has become
nationally available to beekeepers. Janet's program "Healthy Bees &
Environmentally Friendly Varroa Control" discusses how to monitor and manage
your hives, bees and varroa mites using screened bottom boards, powdered sugar,
drone brood manipulations and Small and Natural Cell Beekeeping has been given
at Conferences and clubs throughout the United States.
Well, that is all, please come and join us. Janet is a wonderful speaker I've
listened to her before and I promise you will walk away from this podcast with a
little bit more knowledge than you started. Happy Beekeeping and see you
From Santiago, Bob, and Kitty Happy Beekeeping!!
