That stings! A new study suggests that genetic material in the pollen-rich diets of worker bee larvae ensures that they never grow up to be queens.
One of the major threats to U.S. bees is the varroa mite. Researchers are importing sperm from European bees resistant to mites to toughen up America's stock.
A new study has found that fungi-destroying chemicals may make it harder for bees to metabolize their food. And if they can't get energy, they can't fly.
To find out what's inside a healthy queen bee, an IU Biology professor and other researchers looked at queen bees’ gut bacteria — called a microbiome.
Beekeepers are pushing the EPA to consider impact on pollinators when reviewing new pesticides.
Bees have been dying worldwide, causing concern for global food supply. This week, the EU has taken a step to protect the bees from pesticides.
Turns out honeybees aren't the only pollinators who need to worry about pesticides.
In celebration of Cinco de Mayo, we present four vegan recipes. And, pollinators are the topic of new research and a volunteer project at the community orchard.
Colony collapse disorder, once thought to be just a seasonal fluke thinning the ranks of bees during an especially cold winter, is getting worse.
A new study has been released citing a possible cause of Colony Collapse Disorder, the term given to the recent declines in honey bee colonies.
