The Bee: “The Most Important Living Being on the Planet”
Bees around the world have disappeared up to 90% according to recent studies, the reasons are different depending on the region, but among the main reasons are massive deforestation, lack of safe places for nests, lack of flowers, use uncontrolled pesticides, changes in soil, among others.
Why has bees been declared as the most valuable being on our planet?
The Apiculture Entrepreneurship Center of the Universidad Mayor (CeapiMayor) and the Apiculture Corporation of Chile (Cach) with the support of the Foundation for Agrarian Innovation (FIA), conducted a study where it was determined that bees are the only living being that it is not a carrier of any type of pathogen, regardless of whether it is a fungus, a virus or a bacterium.

Pollinator Sanctuary: A new sustainable solution model from Canada
Saikat Kumar Basu Pollinator insects play a huge role in achieving cross pollination in a wide diversity of crops and plants that are important to both, human ecology and economy.
Three distinct global industries namely agriculture, forestry and apiculture are directly and indirectly dependent upon pollination services provided by biological agents or vectors such as different species of insects, molluscs (such as snails and slugs), birds (like humming bird species) and mammals (such as bats).
Insects such as bees, moths and butterflies, certain species of flies, beetles, wasps and ants play a significant important role in cross pollination in various important crops and plant species.
Among insects, bees play the most important role in providing pollination services to a wide diversity of plants on which we are dependent for maintaining the stability of both our ecosystem as well as our global economy.
However, it is quite unfortunate that honey bees, particularly, the native bees, are demonstrating an alarming decline around the globe due to a number of anthropogenic factors.
According to researchers from around the planet, some of the causal factors cumulatively . . .
Beekeepers Seek to Save Honeybees From a Colony-Invading Pest
Last January, California’s beekeepers were worried they wouldn’t have enough bees to pollinate the almond bloom, their biggest money-making event of the year. Gene Brandi, a California beekeeper and the former president of the American Beekeeping Federation, said winter losses were “as bad or worse than I believe it’s been.”
It turns out he was right. It was another grim year for America’s beekeepers, already

Strategies for Inviting Pollinators Back Into Your Landscape
For years we have been hearing about the diminishing pollinator habitats across the United States. So I am left wondering… What strategies can we use to invite pollinators into our back into our modern landscapes?
As a landscaper, I often incorporate pollinator-friendly plants in my landscape designs. And today, I would like to talk about some of the strategies you can use, to help our plant loving friends re-establish their much needed habitats. These strategies can be used by nearly anyone, anywhere. Even in suburban places where space may be limited. Each of these strategies may be small, but . . .
Garden Guru: Basil amazing for culinary artists, pollinators
Basil has stolen my heart as of late, but it is probably not for what you think. It’s not because the foliage, such as that of Purple Ruffles as Mississippi Medallion Award Winners, is as pretty as a coleus. Nor is for the culinary delicacy provided by Siam Queen, an All-America Selections Award Winner. It is for pollinators.
The fact I am promoting it for pollinators tells all herb lovers and culinary artists I am going polar opposite on recommendations and letting it go to . . .

HOW TO BRING BACK THE BEES: LEGISLATOR LOOKS FOR PLACES TO ENCOURAGE POLLINATORS
Philip Sean Curran
A state lawmaker from Monmouth County has gotten behind a package of legislation aimed at creating more habitat for bees and other pollinators in New Jersey, where beekeepers point to various factors responsible for killing the bee population.
Assemblyman Eric Houghtaling (D-11), the chairman of the Assembly agriculture and natural resources committee, supports giving closed landfills a second life as pollinator habitats. A bill that he and others have sponsored would require the state Department of Environmental Protection to create a program encouraging “the owner or operator” of such landfills to turn them “into habitat that supports animal pollinators using native plants where possible,” the proposed legislation reads in part.
Another bill would require the state DEP to start a “leasing program” of state-owned lands for either . . .

Postdoctoral Research Associate
Postdoctoral Research Associate under the supervision of Dr. Julia D. Fine at the USDA-ARS located in Davis, California. The research assignment is to study and assess factors that contribute to managed honey bee population losses and to develop and implement methods to assess the effects of biotic and abiotic stressors on honey bee reproduction. The focus will be on conducting laboratory experiments in conjunction with large scale field experiments to identify both the individual physiological effects and population level responses to stressors.
- Assigned Responsibility The incumbent will conduct independent and collaborative research on the effects of pesticides, parasites, pathogens, and nutrition on honey bee health, behavior, and development to support the objectives of the long-term research project. The primary focus will be the elucidation of factors that enhance or hinder the longevity and performance of honey bee colonies, examining the effects of stressors both alone and in combination on various aspects of honey bee biology. The incumbent will work as a member of a research team that includes a supporting technician. With approval from the supervisor, the incumbent will work with other scientists within the Research Unit, in other Units at the WRRC, and with scientists outside of ARS, such as entomologists within the University of California and the California Department of Food and Agriculture.
- Research Objectives and Methodology The objective of the research is to characterize threats to honey bee colony populations and identify methods to mitigate them, with particular focus on identifying the effects of stressors on honey bee queens and on interactions between queens and workers. Examples of known threats include exposure to agrochemicals, limited nutritional options, parasitic infestations, and exposure to new or worsening pathogen infections. The incumbent will use both novel and established tools to assay queen and worker performance, reproductive output, and brood development when exposed to various stressors both in the laboratory and in the field. The work will be published in support of cooperative research efforts conducted by USDA-ARS and regional, state, and Federal agencies that manage land and/or water resources.
- Expected Results The research will help identify how stressors affect honey bee reproduction, development and behavior, and how these effects contribute to the long-term success or failure of colonies. It is expected that the research conducted by the incumbent will be used to inform colony management practices and enhance honey bee population survival, contributing to the reliability of pollination services and increased national food security.
- Knowledge Required This position requires a thorough knowledge of entomology, insect biology, and physiology, and associated techniques for investigating physiological, behavioral, and genetic responses to stress. Supplemental knowledge of statistics and experimental design is required. Demonstrated ability in oral and written communication of research results is required. Interested parties are encouraged to contact Dr. Fine at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details. ❀
