Honey Bee Health

On 11 March, Ramesh Sagili, the head of OSU’s apiculture program, will share on the current status of bee health and sustainable beekeeping

To promote sustainable apiculture and pollination, Sagili’s research focuses on three primary areas: Honey bee health, honey bee nutrition and honey bee pollination. Most of Oregon State’s apiculture work is collaborative, involving commercial and backyard beekeepers, growers, the general public interested in bees and other universities around the globe.
