This topic room includes a collection of educational materials, such as the following websites, articles, multimedia, and publications, developed out of SARE-funded pollinator research for those interested in bees and beekeeping. Through these grant projects, farmers, researchers and conservation groups strive to protect pollinators in a number of different ways -- exploring the cause of Colony Collapse Disorder in honeybees, breeding honeybees to strengthen their resistance to pests and diseases, protecting native bee habitats, and finding sustainable ways to incorporate alternative pollinators in fruit and vegetable production.

IPM for Varroa Destructor in the Northeastern U.S.

IPM of Varroa Mite

This bulletin focuses on the management of the parasitic honey bee mite Varroa destructor. It contains information that will allow a beekeeper to: 1) identify V. destructor, 2) recognize the symptoms of mite infestation, 3) determine pest densities, and 4) implement an effective IPM program for keeping mite populations below the economic injury level.

Native Bees and Flowering Cover Crops

Small bee

A four-page bulletin on the benefits of improved bee habitat through cover cropping.
