honey bees on honey combThe honey bee program at Clemson University consists of three broad areas including extension, research, and teaching. One of our primary goals is to help provide the citizenry of South Carolina the opportunity to learn the importance and value of our honey bees and other insect pollinators.

Our honey bees have been challenged by several new diseases and pests over the past several years and they deserve our best efforts in protecting and preserving this precious natural resource.
