Heard on Campus: Maryann Frazier on vanishing bees

November 12, 2008


“Bees are good at collecting everything in their environment, and they've gathered a lot of pesticides -- on average, we've found six pesticides per pollen sample." – Maryann Frazier, senior extension associate in the Department of Entomology
Frazier hosted the fifth Research Unplugged conversation of the fall season on Wednesday, Nov. 12. She discussed "Vanishing Bees: What is Happening to Honey Bees and Other Pollinators" with a packed house of colleagues and community members in the gallery of Penn State's Downtown Theatre. A full podcast of the event will be available on iTunesU and the Research|Penn State Web site http://www.rps.psu.edu/ on Monday, Nov. 17.
Research Unplugged is an informal lecture series hosted by Penn State's Office of Research Publications and held at noon Wednesdays in Penn State's Downtown Theatre Center. The afternoon begins with a brief introduction of the topic, followed by an open floor for questions, comments and discussion. The event is free to the public. Complimentary coffee and light refreshments are served.
