Clemson's Apiculture and Pollinator Program
Flower diversity relies on pollinator diversity As much as 40% of the nation's honey bees are dying each winter (BIP Survey 2019) Insect pollination contributes over $20 billion to the US economy Honey bees and beekeepers are critical to US agriculture North America is home to more than 4,000 species of native bees
Clemson’s Apiculture and Pollinator Program (CAPP) provides extension support to South Carolina’s beekeepers and public education to conserve pollinators statewide. The primary goals of CAPP are to 1) enhance beekeeping in South Carolina by improving educational resources for beekeepers and 2) protect the state’s native pollinators by improving public awareness and perceptions.
