Beekeeping Bees

Harvard and the Beehives

Earlier this spring,  Harvard University reached out to our local beekeeper’s association.  One of their researchers in the School of Public Health is doing research on honeybees.  His goal is to study the distribution of pesticides in pollen across the state of Massachusetts. He is particularly interested in pesticides containing neonicotinoids, as they have shown potential links in previous studies to cause  massive honeybee death (Colony Collapse Disorder).
