Kaira Wagoner and Cory Stevens discuss her highly practical UBO assay and how it effectively identifies bees that are highly resistant to varroa mites. Kaira is currently a research scientist at UNCG, and a co-founder of Optera. She shares some exciting research results that may have massive benefits for honey bee and native bee health.
We discuss a new tool to help honey bees to fight Varroa mite infestations. We have Dr. Kaira Wagoner, from UNCG, discussing her UBeeO system for measuring mite resistance in hives.
