Beeologics: Monsanto’s Commitment to Honey Bee Health

Wednesday, April 3, 2013 @ 7:30 PM-9:00 PM

Science Seminar Series

Featured Speaker: Gerald Hayes, Ph.D., Beeologics Commercial Lead, Monsanto Company; founding member of the Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) Working Group; science advisor for Project Apis Mellifera

Under siege from a variety of invasive and novel pests, parasites and diseases, honey bee health in general is simply not good. We benefit personally from a huge variety of fruits, nuts, vegetables and berries that honey bees are directly responsible for providing to us from their pollination activities. A large section of our environment benefits from these same pollination activities that allow plants to reproduce with seeds and nuts which leads to another generation of these valuable wild plants, which then preserves both bio-diversity and watershed positive impacts. And these same seeds and nuts feed a variety of wildlife and maintain the ecosystem balance. Learn more about how honey bee health is a priority for St. Louis-based Monsanto from Beeologics Bee Health Lead, Jerry Hayes.

To be held at: Saint Louis Zoo Living World auditorium (north side of Zoo)

Parking is FREE in Zoo’s North Lot.

FREE & OPEN to ALL. Registration not required.
