Program: The State of Bees in Minnesota and Beyond: How are bees doing?
The State of Bees in Minnesota and Beyond How are bees doing in Minnesota? How important are they really? What role do they play in our food chain? If you’ve ever been curious about bees, and even if you haven’t been, come hear Brooke Sommerfeldt and discover what a big role these little creatures play along with what threats they face. Minnesota is home to over 400 species of bees. They face several challenges, including pathogens, parasites, pesticides, and lack of pollen and nectar-rich flowers. University of Minnesota Bee Squad's Brooke Sommerfeldt will speak about the current issues facing bees as well as opportunities to keep bees healthy.
