I recently returned from attending the grand opening of the Bayer Crop Science North American Bee Care Center located in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.
This facility, along with the Bayer Bee Care Center in Germany, will provide research regarding the many factors affecting honey bee health.
The Center provides many interactive stations where the public could view a beekeepers working a live honey bee hive, taste honey samples from across the country and see the results of studies and research that are affecting honey bee survival.
The tour of the Center was fascinating along with the bee-friendly planted grounds.
After a light lunch and cake cutting, we had plenty of time to speak with Bayer Staff before getting back on the road for home!
This is truly a beautiful facility!
