Living with Africanized Bees in the Outdoor Workplace

This class is for anyone that works outside. Africanized honeybees can be extremely defensive of their nests and have been known to sting people, pets and other animals to death.

Dr. Bill Kern, Associate Professor, Entomology, University of Florida will be presenting this class. Both sessions are the same, so you only need to attend one.
