Honey Bee Research and Extension Lab

Honey Bee Husbandry

We work to improve managed honey bee health and the pollination services honey bees provide by conducting research projects focused on honey bee colony disease/pest management, nutrition, toxicology, African honey bees, and pollination ecology.

Current Projects

  • Pests/pathogens: their behavior, biology and control
  • The impacts of pesticides on bees
  • General honey bee management projects (nutrition, pollination, honey production, etc.).
