“What’s Up with Honeybee Health?”
Presented by Scott Guiser

Honey bee health continues to be a hot topic for beekeepers and concerned citizens. Scott Guiser, beekeeper of 40 years and former Penn State Extension Educator, will provide an overview of this fascinating insect and give an update on honey bee health. Tips on useful things you can do for this, and other pollinators, as well as leads to the best sources of accurate information will be discussed.

Scott Guiser worked as Penn State University Extension Educator for 37 years where he provided practical, research-based information to people working in nursery, landscape, turfgrass, fruit and vegetable industries. In addition, he coordinated Penn State’s Master Gardening program in Bucks County and provided consumer and horticulture information to the public.  Scott also taught Commercial Fruit Production at DelVal University for nine years.  Scott’s award-winning work has been recognized by the Association of County Agricultural Agents, the Pennsylvania Nurserymen’s Association, Pennsylvania Vegetable Growers Association and the Professional Grounds Management Society.

Currently Scott is a member of the Northeastern Weed Science Society and conducts applied weed research in horticultural crops. He’s also on the faculty at the Barnes Foundation, teaching soil and weed science courses, and he’s an instructor in the Rutgers University Continuing Education Program. He lectures throughout the northeast and keeps honeybees, gardens and cooks for fun.
