I live on a 150 acre farm where I raise chickens, pigeons, peacocks, and many other fowl for showing. Recently we acquired honeybees and had no clue how to overwinter them, which is where the basis for my project came about. I am planning on extending my project for several years into the future. I recommend that any science fair project should be done involving something that you love and have a passion for. I attend an IB school in a nearby town, where I am have completed the IB program. I enjoy singing, playing trombone, and musical theater. I am a founding member of the Youth Algoma Poultry Association, and I am working towards becoming an internationally certified poultry judge. I travel all over Ontario competing at poultry shows. I have a passion for research, and aspire to be a veterinarian.

Destructor destruction: Could this Bee the end?
Region:Algoma Rotary
City:Desbarats, ON
School:Korah Collegiate & Vocational School
Abstract:A study of management techniques of the honeybee parasite Varroa destructor, in regards to hive size and oxalic acid medication. The relationship between brood area and Varroa mite population was explored. The effects of the medication oxalic acid on proteins stored in pollen was explored. Lower population hives have a smaller mite:bee ratio, and the oxalic acid is able to denature stored proteins.
