Honey bees provide critical pollination services to numerous crops and native plants. However, beekeepers have reported unsustainable losses of colonies, averaging 42% nationwide, since 2010. Multiple factors contribute to bee health decline, including poor nutrition, pesticides, and pests and pathogens. Changing climate patterns are also impacting the landscape in ways that affect bees and we are just starting to understand these connections. This presentation reviews these stressors and the role they play in bee decline to highlight practices that may mitigate bee losses.

The event is free and open to the public. Time will be allotted for audience questions.
