BrandonU, UoGuelph all a-buzz with bee-focused projects

Brandon University and the University of Guelph have recently launched bee-focused projects. BrandonU has installed two cameras to capture a “hivestream” of the rooftop beehives it installed earlier this year. The cameras offer 24/7 footage of the hive entrances in an effort to raise awareness about the pollinators and give people from other locations the opportunity to watch the bees. At UoGuelph, a research team led by Dr Amanda Liczner has attached radio trackers to eastern bumblebee queens to study how two insecticides can impact their movements and behaviour. The radio trackers will monitor bee movements and use the data to determine how bees that have had exposure to the insecticides are affected.
