There’s always something interesting on the go at Perennia! Today at the Truro office we have two freshly hatched Queen Bees 🐝

Did you know? Queen bees are raised by a honeybee colony in special queen cells. The cell is in the shape of a peanut and it holds the Queen until she is ready to hatch. The gestation period is about 16 days after her mother laid the egg. When she is ready she chews her way out through the bottom and crawls out #adayatperennia

Vanessa Deveau from NSDAM was recently checking her Western Bean Cutworm trap with Perennia Field Crops Specialist Sonny Murray. Trapping the western bean cutworm will help identify peak flight and distribution of the new pest which can be present in dry beans, snap beans, peas, and sweet and field corn. There are several trap locations in Nova Scotia which are being maintained by Perennia, NSDAM, Pioneer Seeds, Truro Agromart and Cavendish Agri Services. Terry McKay of NSDAM takes the prize for finding the first moth in NS. Check the Western Bean Cutworm 2018 website for an interactive map of trap placement and findings in Canada: www.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=a9e6a076b6cf4ff281cdff460d3ffdad&extent=-9536825.4...
