The declining health of the honey bee


04 November 2009 20:00

Location: The Pierian Centre, 27 Portland Square, St. Paul's, Bristol BS2 8SA, UK.

Event description

The talk will be given by Allen Coates and will cover the various influences on the honey bee population, from exotic pests and global warming to agro-chemicals and other stress-causing factors. These all influence each other, but Allen will build a case against one in particular.

He will then discuss recent improvements in bee husbandry, and offer suggestions for addressing the various problem areas. Allen will close with speculations about the possible consequences of the wide scale demise of the honey bee. Join us for an intriguing evening and find out more about a most important topic.

Note: there is a charge of £3.30 for this event to cover costs.
