Science Cafe presents: Saving Bees by Killing Them!
Monday, February 28, 2022
The honey bee is a significant agricultural tool that is suffering from many factors that lead to colony collapse, & the overall death of arguably the world's most important pollinator.
This science cafe is outlining parasitisation of the honey bee, which is just one of the factors that may lead to colony collapse. Here we outline the research being done at FHSU into the mitigation of parasites, which starts with isolation & production of genetic "poisons".
