About

To help meet the challenge of protecting pollinators, several faculty and staff at Iowa State University (ISU) and the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship formed the Iowa Pollinator Conservation Working Group (IPCWG) in 2013. This group reflects a partnership with colleagues and stakeholders from across the state. Members include scientists and educators with a focus on pest management, and members studying novel ways to conserve pollinators and other insects within an agricultural landscape. Read more about

    Sticky like cotton candy, the webbing from a wax moth (Achroia grosella) infestation is, for lack of a better term...

    Trying out the tilt-weigh method to measure hive mass as part of our overwintering research. We are looking at the effects of wrapping and insulation on hive overwintering success. @ashleylstclair #beesofinstagram #honeybee #bees #beekeeping #honeybees #hives #beekeeper #apiary #iowastate #beeresearch #entomology #honey #apismellifera #soybeans #prairie #extension #iowa

    Bee hotel! Saw this last summer at the Iowa Arboretum in Madrid, IA. Snapped a photo of one of the hotel's little residents. #beesofinstagram #honeybee #bees #honeybees #hives #beekeeper #apiary #iowastate #beeresearch #entomology #honey #apismellifera #soybeans #prairie #extension #iowa # native bees #wildbees #arboretum
