The men of experiment are like the ant; they only collect and use. But the bee...gathers its materials from the flowers of the garden and of the field, but transforms and digests it by a power of its own.
— Leonardo da Vinci

Research Support-What we have achieved

  • Field work research support for Tammy Tran's honey bee 2016-2017 research project at Creighton University entitled: "Dicistrovirus infections in honey bees (Apis mellifera): establishment of an infection model"

  • Pilot studies funded partially by the proceeds from our sales enabled Dr. Fassbinder-Orth to obtain a $15,000 grant to study honey bee behavior and viral infections. This work was also featured in a commercial by Canon, shown below:
