Microscopy is the technical field of using microscopes to view samples and objects that cannot be seen with the unaided eye (objects that are not within the resolution range of the normal eye).
For beekeepers with an interest in pollen, anatomy, and disease relevant to the honey bee this one day course is designed to cover all standards of attendee from beginner to old hand.
It provides an introduction to using a microscope, making pollen slides, abdominal dissection and diagnosis of acarine and nosema.
The course is limited to 12 attendees and is offered on a first come first served basis.
In the event of the course being over subscribed we hope that it may be possible to run further courses in the future.
Please bring your own packed lunch.
