BEEKEEPING RESEARCH ON parasites, pathogens and pesticides in NYS

Emma Mullen – Honey Bee Extension Associate: Department of Entomology at Cornell University

The Honey Bee Research and Extension Program at Cornell University is working to understand the stress factors that are impacting bees in New York State. Emma Mullen leads an ongoing research program that investigates the prevalence of Varroa mites, Nosema, 8 viruses, and pesticides in over 300 honey bee colonies across the state. In this talk, she will share her results from this research to help shed light on the prevalence of parasites, pathogens, and pesticides in NYS and what beekeepers can do to keep their colonies healthy.
