Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: As part of the Bee-Fungicide Workshop at NACREW, there will be updates on the latest evidence characterizing how fungicides may cause colony declines in native bee species. Findings will cover recent work with Bombus impatiens and Osmia lignaria. Discussions will be focusing on how the US cranberry industry can begin conducting research on alternative use patterns for fungicides.
