HONEY BEE HEALTH
Our mission is to collaboratively implement solutions that will help
to achieve a healthy population of honey bees while also supporting
healthy populations of native and managed pollinators in the context
of productive agricultural systems and thriving ecosystems.
HOW WE HELP BEES
Forage and Nutrition
We are looking at ways to improve honey bee nutrition to provide diversity in honey bee forage.
We are making investments to understand and suppress varroa mite and virus susceptibility and developing best management practices (BMPs) for beekeepers.
Crop Pest Management
We are developing crop- and product-specific best management practices and messaging.
Outreach, Education and Communication
We are working across the public and private sector to coordinate on solutions that work.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Crop Production Stakeholders
Honey bees and agriculture are deeply linked. As land owners and decison makers, growers and producers have a major role to play in improving honey bee health. The success of pollinator-friendly initiatives depends in large part on engaging these agricultural stakeholders.
Beekeepers and Bee Health Stakeholders
Operating along the front lines of honey bee health, beekeepers and other bee health stakeholders can arm themselves with knowledge and tools to better protect their hives. Engaging these stakeholders is critically important to spreading best management practices and ultimately improving honey bee health.
