Is Monsanto involved in trying to find the cause or a solution to the ongoing bee problem?

Yes, we are, Emily. We are directly affected by declining honey bee health  — our vegetable, fruit and canola seed businesses depend on healthy pollinators. Our research focuses on the number one issue facing honey bees: the Varroa mite. As a founding member of the Honey Bee Health Coalition — a public-private partnership dedicated to improving honey bee health — we work with farmers and beekeepers to find sound, evidence-based and long-term solutions for improving honey bee health. The challenges facing pollinators are complex and require a joint, collective response from agriculture, government and the public — we have to work together.
