Closed for the Season April 10th 2019

Our 2018-2019 is now complete. We received 571 samples this season, this is down 100 from the 2017-2018 season. We did anticipate the low numbers and were only expecting around 500.   We had 101 sex ratios this year.  

Jane and I would like to thank all of you for supporting the lab this season especially with the price of bees again this year.
If anyone needs to get a hold of us, please call the lab and leave a message or send an email.

I have attached the Canadian results for your information
