April 15, 2011. Whenever we look to what’s going on scientifically with honeybees, instinctively we turn to Dr. Lynn Royce for information. We spoke with her on-camera last August about Colony Collapse Syndrome, and her ongoing work to breed more disease resistant queen bees—she does not treat her hives with pesticides.
Here’s a link to a story we did about her a few years back called Call of the Honeybees See also a recent video with Lynn: Tree Hive Bees- Scientific Research to Save the Honeybees (video)
The pictures below were taken from our visit last summer. For those in the area of Philomath, Oregon, her honey is the best I have ever tasted.
