Originally from the Flatwoods of South Georgia, this Baxley, Ga. native now lives in College Station, Texas where he aids beekeepers in colony health monitoring and surveillance. Cade received his B.S. in Agriculture from Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in 2020. While at ABAC, he founded the Abraham Baldwin Beekeeper’s Association to teach other college students, faculty, and the community about the importance of bees and beekeeping in the state and nationwide. He began keeping honeybees at the age of 14 and has been “addicted” ever since. Before coming to BIP, Cade worked for two commercial operations in Georgia: Gardner Apiaries and Georgia Bee Supply. He also worked for University of Georgia Tifton Campus Entomology Department assisting in bioassays and management of Diamondback Moth and Silverleaf Whitefly colonies. He looks forward to expanding his expertise in honey bee genetics, queen trials, and helping to produce a more resistant honey bee.
