Bayer CropScience operates two Bee Care Centers dedicated to pollinator health. The center in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA, hosts a full laboratory and research apiary, as well as honey extraction and workshop spaces. The research focuses on multiple factors affecting bee health, including parasites, predators, diseases, seasonal management and environmental stressors.
Blooming strips in front of the Bayer Bee Care Center in Monheim, Germany, showcase what can be done to provide more pollinator habitat and encourages others to follow suit.
Over the last 50 years, managed honey bee colony numbers worldwide have increased by some 45 percent.
As a bee health company with nearly 30 years of experience, Bayer works to combat the Varroa mite – believed by many bee researchers to be the main threat to bee health, due to the viruses and diseases it transmits.
