The speaker, Bill Ruzicka, is a professional engineer who in 1980 became a bee breeder. He operated 500 hives for pollination and bee stock production in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia Canada and produces 500 super nukes for Alberta each year. He is a keeper of “Vernon Bee Stock.” His operations are highly mechanized and extremely organized reflecting his years as an aircraft engineer. Bill holds a patent to the biological control of Varroa using the fungus Hirsutila Thompsonia. In search for a better formic acid treatment suitable for a commercial operation, he evaluated many existing methods of treatment and compiled a set of principles for successful treatment. The formic acid treatment he developed is now used in Canada, USA, New Zealand, Argentina and Europe. Since 2002 thirty seminars were held in New Zealand, 50 in the USA and Canada, 4 in Europe, 5 in ST Lucia, and 10 in Argentina including several states, national and regional conventions.
