There will be the opportunity to carry out honeybee dissection as well as pollen analysis and Nosema/Acarine detection.

In addition to lunch, please bring with you:

  1. Microscopes together with lighting (if you have your own).
  2. Sample of bees – 30 bees (dead!). The sample should be no more than 2-3 days old. Place live bees in a freezer for a minimum of 24 hours to kill them.
