Bee Lab

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

The Bee Lab's mission is to promote the conservation, health, and diversity of bee pollinators through research, education, and hands-on mentorship. 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 announce that Dr. Cariveau joined us September 2015!
