PROGRAMS UNDERWAY INCLUDE
The Bee Understanding Project:
We asked beekeepers, growers, entomologists, and crop advisors to swap jobs and look for ways they could work better together. Their experience was captured on film, so you can watch and see what they’re doing differently.
Members of the Honey Bee Health Coalition are active at regional and national beekeeping and agricultural events and tradeshows. We attend events to talk with beekeepers and farmers about practices they can implement to improve bee health on their farms and in their hives.
HBHC submitted a proposal to the Council for Agricultural Science and Technology (CAST) encouraging CAST to produce a paper summarizing the latest science related to declines in bee health. The paper, released in June 2017, discusses methods used to document colony losses, recommendations for research, and suggestions for all stakeholders to engage in helping to restore healthy populations of honey bees and other pollinators.
