Introduction to Microscopy for Beekeepers 7th July

We will give a brief introductory presentation on the types of microscope required and how they are used for beekeeping microscopy.  We will demonstrate the preparation of pollen slides.  We will also demonstrate acarine dissection, abdominal dissection and nosema testing.

The event is free for Lancaster Beekeepers members and a nominal fee of £5 charged to non members.

We have plenty of kit so everyone can try making pollen slides and preparing nosema slides.

Depending on how many stereo microscopes are available (we can bring 3) people could also have a go at acarine/abdominal dissection.

Please register for the microscopy event (limited places), by emailing
