We are currently wrapping up a second challenging season, but we have been coping with the various constraints placed on all of us. Jennifer used the relatively open field season to practice and refine her skills on instrumental insemination. Brad conducted several more experiments on drone reproductive quality including a flight experiment using RFID tags. Ali was exceptionally busy in both the field and the lab, conducting both her main projects as well as several side projects in collaboration with Canadian beekeepers. Esmaeil was also very busy in the field and he is currently wrapping up his analyses in the lab before his big move to the USDA and Mississippi State. Sharon put in a tremendous effort to re-launch our latest BEES Academy this fall, in between helping in the field on various projects. Erin has been sampling her experimental hives every other week since March, so the number of samples she has obtained is quite substantial, but supply-chain issues have stalled her ability to analyze all of them because of a lack of lab supplies. We’re happy to be joined by three new undergraduates in the lab—Morgan, Kaitlyn, and Glenn—now that undergraduate research is not as restricted as last season. We look forward to completing our various studies and writing them up for publication soon!
