    This article presents information on several kinds of honey bees. Settlers from Europe first introduced honey bees in the U.S. in the early 16th century. The German bees, which were introduced by the settlers, were predominant for decades but later lost ground to the imported Italian honey bee...

    In South Africa, modified Bt (Cryl Ac) cotton cultivars and organic ones coexist. This raises the question of the risk of dissemination of genetically modified (GM) pollen to non-GM crops by visiting insects. We inventoried the flower-visiting insects in Bt and non-Bt cotton fields of the South...

    The article discusses the genetic diversity and changes in the U.S. honey bee population. It tells about the passage of the Honey Bee Act of 1992 in response to importation and the introduction of exotic bee diseases and parasites. It also tackles the advantage of intra-colony genetic diversity...

    At present, Varroosis is considered the major problem to beekeeping development. The aim of this work was to evaluate brood tramp combs technique as possible control method of mite Varroa destructor (Anderson & Trueman).

    Pollen is the sole source of protein for honey bees, most importantly used to rear young. Honey bees are adept at regulating pollen stores in the colonies based on the needs of the colony. Mechanisms for regulation of pollen foraging in honey bee are complex and remain controversial. In this...
