The 2023 Spring Meeting and Raffle will feature our guest speaker and local boy made good, Zachery Lamas. Zac will discuss his latest research on the presence of varroa in drone cells. And as always we will have a spectacular raffle!

Zac Lamas is a NIFA postdoctoral fellow under Jay Evans at the Bee Research Laboratory in Beltsville, MD. He focuses on how Varroa feeding behavior drives viral transmission in a honey bee colony. His current work uncovered how varroa are actively feeding and switching from one adult bee to another, and that mites aggregate on adult drones. During his PhD he was the recipient of the PAm-Costco award where he studied the vectorial capacity of Varroa destructor. He actively speaks at bee clubs and professional conferences, largely sharing information on beekeeping management. Zac previously worked for Michael Palmer at French Hill Apiaries in Saint Albans, Vermont. On the side Zac is the owner and operator of RockStar Queens. He produces quality nucleus colonies and queens in central Maryland.
