Randy Oliver Visits The Valley Hive

 

Randy Oliver with The Valley Hive owners, Keith Roberts and Danny Finkelstein

The Valley Hive was buzzing with excitement as famed beekeeper, Randy Oliver, took to the stage to share his extensive knowledge and beekeeping experience with a crowd of more than a hundred Southern California beekeepers. The workshop on Sunday, August 26th, was sponsored by the Los Angeles County Beekeepers Association and was FREE to all LACBA members.

Randy speaks all over the world and is well-respected and admired for his in depth research on honey bees. He is known for "evidence-based and scientifically-verified explanations of the biological processes occurring in the hive, as well as the effects of various management options." He does not prefer to offer his own opinions but rather provides information that beekeepers can use in order to make their own " better-informed practical management decisions."

Randy Oliver speaks passionately about his work.

After losing almost all of his hives at one point due to varroa mite, Randy decided to fight back! Armed with scientific knowledge from his background in biology and entomology, Randy and his team (consisting of his two sons) have worked tirelessly to find effective ways to combat the destructive varroa mite. His research is readily accessible on their website: ScientificBeekeeping.com.  

Randy Oliver has bee wings Did you know spending too much time in the bee yard may cause you to sprout bee wings?
