September Science Café examines mysterious honeybee illness

Published: 26 August 2013

A mysterious illness is wiping out a significant percentage of honeybee colonies in the United States. An NDSU scientist will explain why this is happening and outline the challenges of restoring colony health.

Julia Bowsher, NDSU assistant professor of biological sciences, will discuss the topic during the September Science Café “Collapse: How honeybees are dying and what we can do about it.”

The event is scheduled for Sept. 10 at 7 p.m. in Stokers Basement, Hotel Donaldson in Fargo. It’s free and open to the public.

“The pollination crisis is affecting agriculture nationwide,” Bowsher said. “And North Dakota has a central role to play.” 

Attendees must be 21 or older or accompanied by a parent or guardian. For more information, contact Keri Drinka at keri.drinka@ndsu.edu or 701-231-6131.

NDSU is recognized as one of the nation’s top 108 public and private universities by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education.
