University Of Guelph Honey Bee Research Centre
A Leader In Apiculture, Research And Education
Honey bees play a key role in agricultural productivity and ecosystem sustainability by providing pollination services to crops and wild plants. Our mandate is to help honey bees continue this vital work.
The honey harvest began in mid July. This year, basswood and linden trees produced a significant amount of nectar, so our honey has a definite aroma and an underlying taste of mint
Varroa mite is a tick-like parasite that feeds on the blood and fat tissue of immature and adult bees.
The more we know about honey bees, their behaviours, risk factors and optimum environment, the better we can promote their health...
Here at the HBRC, our team took some time to taste three different types of honey originating from different locations in Ontario, Canada.
We are creating a new, iconic facility for honey bee education, research, advocacy and outreach. It will be a destination; a place of excellence in design, function and research. All in support of the future of honey bees.
