ASU honey bee lab works to save the vital insects

Tucked away in a dirt lot at the southern edge of Arizona State University’s Polytechnic Campus in Mesa, the Honey Bee Research Lab is home to wide-ranging studies into the winged insects that play a vital role in pollinating the country’s food supply.

The facility – which can house around 1 million bees in peak season in the spring – gives ASU faculty and graduate students space to conduct research on many bee-related topics, including genetics, breeding, behavior and physiology.
