"What's Killing the Bees? The Impacts of Pathogens and Other Factors on Honey Bees"
Thursday, March 5th at 4:30pm in Barnard 126
Presented by Michelle Flenniken (Plant Pathology & Plant Sciences)
Honey bees are the primary insect pollinators of U.S. crops and whose work is valued at approximately $17 billion annually. Unfortunately, for the past 10 years, honey bee colony losses have approached 30 percent, annually. Join Michelle Flenniken, MSU microbiologist and co-director of MSU’s Pollinator Health Center, for an exciting conversation on what’s affecting honey bee colony health and the importance of basic and applied science to address this important global challenge.
