Imported INVASIVE Diversity Detrimental to Bee Health

Honeybees are struggling to get enough good bacteria,
Lancaster University, April 17, 2018.

"Human changes to the landscape...is affecting the diversity of the 'microbiome' associated with honeybees' long-term food supply."

"...examined the mix of bacteria, known as a microbiome, of bee bread - which is the long-term food supply stored within a hive for young bees."

"Bees use a diverse community of bacteria to turn fresh pollen into a long-term food store. They need a range of bacteria to help them fight off infectious diseases, and also the bacteria can act as a preservative for bee bread within hives. Without a diverse microbiome the bee bread can be more vulnerable to mould, causing a food shortage for the hive."

"...we therefore believe this demonstrates an indirect link between landscape composition and bee fitness."

"Native bees, their forage plants and the bacteria located within have evolved together and the bacteria bees pick up from non-native plants may be less likely to be beneficial to the hive."

"This may be evidence that bees suffer from foraging on non-native plants that they have not co-evolved with."
