Beneficial Insects to Help Beekeepers

Phillip Tedders of Southeastern Insectaries will explain how beneficial Nematodes are an environmentally friendly, biological alternative to the use of toxic chemical pesticides as a means to control pests. He will clarify the distinctions between nematodes and show us which ones specifically target Small Hive Beetles.


Phillip will have packages of Nematodes for sale at our meeting but it is advisable to pre-order them by calling or emailing Southeastern Insectaries at 478-988-9412
