Welcome to the Hunt lab's Bee Hive. We are involved in honey bee research and education.


Join our community research project and try our “mite-biter” queens!


Please participate in a honey bee loss survey. Help understand and quantify the losses of bees in Indiana over the past months and build on the results for the Bee Informed Survey:

http://beeinformed.org/2014/06/state-by-state-colony-loss-2013-2014/

Responses will be automatically tallied. Names will not be associated with the answers. No e-mail address will be gathered unless they are intentionally provided by the participant.

Do you have a swarm to pick up? Find a local swarm catcher here: <http://www.in.gov/dnr/entomolo/5755.htm>.

When bees swarm the queen and most of the hive bees leave after filling up on honey. Bees in a swarm are usually very gentle but leave them alone! With all those bees flying one could get stuck in your hair. The swarm sends out scout bees to find a new cavity to nest in. They usually stay for a few days and then they are off to their new home.
