Summary:
Modern commercial beekeeping has changed from primarily honey production to crop pollination. With this change has come extraordinary stress-colonies are moved multiple times a year, increasing their exposure to diseases, parasites, and hive pests. Antibiotics and acaricides are being applied more frequently, resulting in resistance and comb contamination. The future use of bee colonies as mobile pollinator  Read more...
