Dr. Kelly Kulhanek, Postdoctoral Researcher, Hopkins Lab, Washington State University
Kelly is a postdoctoral researcher in the WSU Bee Program. She came to WSU after completing her doctorate studying honey bee health and management practices lab at the University of Maryland. At WSU, she works on commercial beekeeping practices including indoor storage of colonies and improving Varroa management.
Title: Future Applications of Indoor Storage: Queen Banking and Other Possibilities
Kelly’s talk will feature results from WSU’s work on the indoor storage of colonies. Beekeepers typically use indoor storage to reduce labor and materials inputs into colonies overwinter. The WSU Bee Program is looking into other potential uses for indoor storage. Kelly will share recent results on projects investigating indoor queen banking and Varroa management.
