Editor’s note: This article is from the archives of the MSU Crop Advisory Team Alerts. Check the label of any pesticide referenced to ensure your use is included.
Zachary Huang, MSU Department of Entomology, maintains a website (http://www.cyberbee.net/) that provides useful information about honey bees and beekeepers. One service of this site allows growers to find beekeepers that provide honey bee colonies for pollination services. To use this feature go to the URL listed above and then click on Beebase. At that link, you can find beekeepers by name, zip code, area code, or county. The site also has some great photographs of bees.
