    Social learning in Honey bees - Overview of honey bee communication and pesticide problems - Dr. James Nieh

    Social learning in Honey bees - Overview of honey bee communication and pesticide problems - Dr. James Nieh

    Hello everyone, On our latest podcast episode, we had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. James Nieh from the University of California in San Diego about the social learning of the waggle dance in honey bees. Dr. Nieh shared with us his insights on honey bee communication and the implications of these findings in modern beekeeping practices. We also discussed the potential effects of neurotoxic pesticides on honey bees' learning capacity and how it could interfere with their chances of competing in nature. If you want to learn more about this fascinating topic, be sure to check out the links below.

    Thank you for listening, and we hope you enjoy this episode! The video version of the interview on YouTube:

NP Ranch Honey Bees ,

InsideTheHive.TV

I’m thrilled to lear that Dr. Humberto Boncristiani will be launching a podcast. I have been a fan of his InsideTheHive.TV videos for several years. I really like his lazer focus on important new scientific findings in bee research. He is a master of literature evaluation and expertly guides the researchers he interviews through the information need to help the viewer understand the implications of the research findings. There aren’t a lot of science- based honey bee podcasts and I am verry pleased that Dr. Boncristiani will be moving into this space. I like that he seems to have his finger on the pulse of the most important new research findings and brings them to my attention prompbly after publication. I very much appreciate the ongoing education that Dr. Boncristiani provides. I have learned a lot from him and the guests that he interviews.
