Why Hobby Beekeepers in Urban Environments Should Limit Themselves to Two Hives

'Bee Man

Hobby beekeepers in urban environments should limit themselves to two hives, says apiculturist Norman Gary, emeritus professor of entomology at the University of California, Davis, in his newly published book,  Honey Bee Hobbyist: The Care and Keeping of Bees, second edition. Just as...

Feeling the buzz on Christmas Day? Bugs on your Christmas tree? You may have overlooked another "present": eggs of the invasive spotted landernfly may be on your tree. Bot flies on reindeer? What you need to know about these flies! (Poor Rudolph! Is his red nose in jeopardy?) Fleas Navidad? Alex...

Shedding New Light on Honey Bee Chromosomes

Honey bee geneticists with long ties to UC Davis are putting together those missing pieces of the puzzle involving bee chromosomes. Newly published research by a team of Germany-based honey bee geneticists, collaborating with Robert Eugene (“Rob”) Page Jr., of Arizona State...


"The honey bee genome,” Robert Page Jr. explained, “is composed of about 15,000 genes, each of which operates within a complex network of genes, doing its small, or large, share of work in building the bee, keeping its internal functions operating, or helping it function and behave in its environment.
