About Dwight

Dwight’s passion is promoting sustainable beekeeping. This creates low over-wintering losses, mentoring, and educating beekeepers. Dwight currently works on several projects focusing on on feral honey bees with both Penn State University and Purdue University. The focus on the studies involve chasing feral swarms with swarm traps, then evaluating the chewing behavior of the feral colonies. In 2019, Dwight started a project to distribute 48-hour queen cells, mature queen cells, or unmated queens within the Heartland Honey Bee Breeder Cooperative (HHBBC) region.
