Gordon Waller Retires; DATCP Seeks New Apiary Inspector

After 22 seasons, Gordon Waller is retiring from his position as an inspector with the apiary program at the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection.  Gordon spent his summers visiting beekeepers around NW Wisconsin checking hives for diseases and pests. Beekeepers welcomed his broad and deep knowledge of beekeeping, and his visits were as much about education as inspecting. We have been incredibly privileged to have Gordon on staff with us.
