Jessica LawrenceHoney Bee colonies have been under pressure due to a variety of environmental factors. The effect of pesticides has specifically been debated and honey bee studies are being conducted to address this issue. The webinar will discuss how such studies are custom designed to fit both the EPA regulation requirements, and general beekeeping practices. Studies are normally conducted under Good Laboratory Practices but occasionally also include preliminary pilot studies to design the final study for EPA submission. This presentation will cover many of the designing aspects of studies.
