About the UGA Honey Bee Program

Honey bees have been the Official State Insect of Georgia since 1975, and a subject of teaching and inquiry at the University of Georgia for decades. These marvelous insects are manageable and are used to produce honey and pollinate crops. They are practical models of biological organization and social behavior.
