Project Apis m. Honey Bee Research Resource Updates for Beekeepers

Date: 25 Aug.  2024

This talk will highlight several research projects funded through Project Apis m., and how what we have learned from varroa, nutrition, and pesticide projects apply to beekeepers. Grace will also share new beekeeping resources, created over the past year, that are free for beekeepers to access through Project Apis m.
