Extension’s Drummond in MPBN Bee Report

Maine Public Broadcasting Network interviewed University of Maine Cooperative Extension entomologist and pollination expert Frank Drummond for a report about his participation in a five-year collaborative study in Maine, Massachusetts, New York and Connecticut to help Northeastern fruit growers improve pollination methods, overcome obstacles, and, in Maine, promote the use of wild, native bees by blueberry farmers in the wake of declining commercial honeybee populations due to disease. A news release has additional information about the USDA-funded study.
