This month's coffee talk will focus on tips for Coffee Berry Borer (CBB) management. CBB damage can be very serious. Greatly minimize the loss with a multi-pronged approach. Learn how and when to spray the Bassiana fungus. (commercial Botanigard ES and Mycotrol O). Discussion includes how to mix and apply the fungus, when to spray, the latest research on control and effective strategies.   Suzanne Shriner will lead the presentation, Alvin Sato from BEI and Reggie Hasegawa from CPS will be on the discussion panel.  We are awaiting confirmation who from the bee-keeping community will join in the discussion of best practices. 

Also open for discussion will be how to maintain your traps, field sanitation and worker education.
