Jack Silberrad – 99p or EFB; Surviving and Thriving

With experience managing hundreds of colonies in environments as diverse as heather moors, London rooftops, and Manuka hills in New Zealand, Jack runs his colonies in Cambridgeshire, where he is the resident bee inspector.

A microbiologist academically and passionate for community outreach, he works tirelessly for healthy bees where in 2022 he diagnosed ~10% of all EFB in England & Wales—from dispelling rumours and myths surrounding the NBU’s operations, recounting adventures with the ‘Typhoid Mary’ of Cambridgeshire and sharing new findings and best practices.

Jack hopes to deliver an entertaining and refreshing insight as to why any beekeeper would want to spend their days elbow-deep in EFB on Earth.

Tom Williamson, DAERA Senior Bee Inspector

Tom will give us an update on the health of our NI Honeybees and an update on the Asian Hornet.
