New bee health management tools

Baer Research

A number of environmental stressors are responsible for the declines in bee health and the resulting losses of colonies. Our ability to manage such stressors through different treatments or medications is very limited. Our work aims to develop new bee health development tools that will help beekeepers to counter declines in bee health and minimize future losses. Examples are the development of new medications to treat bee diseases or innovative ways to repel bees from dangerous areas, for example insecticide treated crops.
