It was a wonderful weekend at the Pennsylvania State Beekeepers Association conference in State College. Beekeepers came from all over PA to listen and learn about honey bees and beekeeping. I am Margarita, a new assistant professor at Penn State and leader of the Lopez-Uribe Lab. I was a guest speaker at the PSBA conference and gave a quick overview of my research and the future goals of my lab. I handed out a survey during the conference in hopes of finding out more details about PA beekeeper demographics and their interests. In total, 29 beekeepers took the survey. Here is a link that includes a short summary of the results.
