Learn more about bees with the Bee Lab. 

Bee Lab

Bees fascinate and inspire. Bee research fosters creative thought and practical solutions.

The goal of our bee research at the University of Minnesota is to promote the health of bee pollinators. We work as a team to provide the richest learning environment for students at all levels and from all backgrounds.

Dr. Marla Spivak, MacArthur Fellow and Distinguished McKnight Professor in Entomology, conducts research on honey bees with excellent technical support of Mr. Gary Reuter and graduate students.

Dr. Dan Cariveau, newly hired Assistant Professor, conducts research on the ecology and habitat needs of native bees. We are proud to have Dr. Cariveau join us in the Bee Lab in September 2015!
