Beekeeper tending to hives

We are a group of scientists from various university departments and agricultural experiment stations, and collectively we share expertise in insect pollinators, pest management, analytical chemistry, and economics.

We’ve come together on a five-year research project to help environmental horticulture growers navigate how to manage insect and mite pests while protecting bees.

We also have a group of stakeholders who act as an advisory board for our research. Our stakeholders include beekeepers, garden associations, crop protection companies, nurseries, a government agency, and non-profits.

This website is a place to communicate updates and findings from our research project, as well as a place to provide additional materials for growers and the wider public.
