    Topic: Effects of Realistic Pesticide Exposure on Queen Health

    Joe's  work is focused on better understanding realistic chemical challenges faced by honey bees. Hive residue data has demonstrated that multiple chemical exposure is pervasive within wax and bee bread and can pose a risk to colony health. Joe has been using previously recorded residue data to test the effects of realistic pesticide exposure on queen health and the downstream impacts on colonies later established by exposed queens. Testing pesticide mixtures and their sublethal effects on colony mechanisms helps to build on a toxicological legacy which has been largely focused on testing the lethality of single chemicals.  We will explore residue data and discuss in-hive chemical exposure with the intention of better understanding the interactions between bees and pesticides.
