Ontario’s beekeeping industry is recognized internationally as a leader in honey bee disease detection and prevention. Since the early 1990’s, the Ontario Beekeepers’ Association Technology Transfer program has been embraced by bee breeders in the province. They have participated in testing and worked closely with the technology transfer team to improve hive health. The program has played a key role in the selection of honey bee stock for disease resistance characteristics. The program has succeeded on its team efforts - and is yielding sweet results.
