2021 IPM Workshop

The ABC is pleased to present the 2021 Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Workshop on Wednesday, March 10, 2021

We are pleased to confirm that the upcoming Integrated Pest Management Workshop is going ahead, but to ensure the health and safety of all guests and speakers, we have transitioned this workshop event to a 1-day online webinar format.

Join us to hear from a diverse range of talented speakers who will provide you with the latest in research and best management practices to help keep your bees healthy.

We appreciate your understanding with moving this event to a 100% online format, and understand that it is disappointing that we can’t yet gather safely in person.
