Extension Experts Interviewed for Honeybee Article

University of Maine Cooperative Extension professor and blueberry specialist David Yarborough and UMaine Extension entomology specialist Frank Drummond, who holds a joint appointment with UMaine’s School of Biology and Ecology, were interviewed for a Bangor Daily News article about the value of bees for pollinating Maine’s wild blueberry and fruit crops. Drummond has been leading a national $3.3 million grant-funded consortium to study native bee populations and biological threats to them. Growers depend upon native and imported honeybees and bumble bees to pollinate crops.
