Our 2017-2018 is now complete - We received 692 samples this season down 8 from 2016-2017. 152 of those were sex ratios. Jane and I would like to thank all of you for supporting the lab this season especially with the price of bees this year. If anyone needs to get a hold of us please call the lab and leave a message or send me an email.

I have attached the Canadian results for your information
