Canada funds nationwide bee study

The Canadian government has awarded Can$1 million (US$929,550 ) to the Beekeepers Commission of Alberta to initiate a four-year, nationwide surveillance project to document the health of honeybee colonies. The aim is to record the nature and extent of diseases, pest organisms and chemical residues in Canadian apiaries. Such surveillance has previously been done on a regional basis, and the sector is seeking to expand co-ordination and identify national commonalities, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) points out. The project builds on work that AAFC researchers have undertaken in partnership with the Canadian Honey Council, the Canadian Association of Professional Apiculturists and their international counterparts in recent years.
