Bee health

For several years now, a phenomenon resulting in the weakening and mortality of bee colonies has been seen in many countries. In this context, the impact of various factors that may act alone or in combination on the health of bee colonies (infectious and parasitic diseases, stress related to changes in food resources, plant protection products, climate conditions, etc.) has regularly been demonstrated through different scientific studies. Below is an update on this issue and details of the Agency's work.
