Honey bee pest and disease diagnostic services could be coming to MSU

Michigan State University is asking beekeepers to weigh in on a potential honey bee pest and disease identification service.

Meghan Milbrath of the Northern Bee Network and Michigan Pollinator Initiative, and Walter Pett of Michigan State University Extension are asking for your input on potential diagnostic services for pests and diseases in managed Michigan honey bee hives.

The survey is designed to give campus diagnosticians an idea of the demand and price that beekeepers would be willing to pay for processing samples.
