About Randy

Randy Oliver is one of the most well-known figures in modern beekeeping. He is a of  premier beekeeping speaker, the owner/author of ScientificBeekeeping, and regularly contributes articles to American Bee Journal.

Randy began beekeeping around 1966 as a hobbyist, received a formal education in biology with a focus in entomology, and built a migratory bee operation in California starting in 1980.

The Varroa destructor mite wiped out his operation twice: once in 1993 and again in 1999. Over time, Randy has become a primary source of quality, scientific information about the Varroa destructor mite and the available treatments for controlling it.
