Bob Danka

Dr. Bob Danka is the Research Leader and a Research Entomologist whose primary interests are honey bee behavior and pollination. He has led studies on behavior and management of Africanized honey bees, honey bee behavior related to crop pollination, and the genetically based resistance of honey bees to tracheal mites and Varroa mites. The majority of his current efforts are aimed at increasing our understanding of mite resistance based on Varroa sensitive hygiene (VSH), and fostering adoption of bees with VSH-based resistance by the beekeeping industry.
