Honey bees experience multiple health stressors out-in-the-field

Honey bees experience multiple health stressors out-in-the-field

Media Release from April 17, 2024 It’s not a single pesticide or virus stressing honey bees, and affecting their health, but exposure to a complex web of multiple interacting stressors encountered while at work pollinating crops, found new research out of York University. Scientists have been unable to explain increasing colony mortality, even after decades […]
