Arista Bee Research Foundation has achieved a milestone in the fight against Varroa mites: Beekeepers and researchers have bred honey bees that fight the pest themselves. Test colonies succeeded in reducing the number of mites – by detecting infested offspring.
Bee health was one of the topics at the Ag Issues Forum 2015. And for the first time, the Bayer Bee Care Program also participated. Among other things, the bee experts explained the importance of honey bees to school kids.
