A bee on a flower

A honey bee rests on a flowering Golden Delicious apple tree at the Penn State Fruit Research and Extension Center, in Biglerville, Pa. Penn State researchers and graduate students there are studying the effect of certain pesticides on bees, and whether changes in the timing of application can limit pollinators’ exposure while still keeping pests at bay.
