Honey bees are essential for the food crops that we consume daily. One-third of this food relies on bee pollination and other pollinators like butterflies, birds, and bats. U.S. Beekeepers are losing an average of 30-40% of their honey bee colonies due to factors like parasites, diseases, chemical usage, and habitat loss. Learn about these important insects and the repercussions of their decline. Dr. Cahit Ozturk is a research technologist and associate researcher at Arizona State University. He works with several distinguished research teams at ASU where he helps design projects focused on honey bee learning and behavior.
