ACUC regulations regarding bees
I had an inquiry regarding any possible models for Animal Care and Use Procedures that may be in place for working with bees. I was unaware of any as most ACUC committees don't regulate studies having to do with invertebrates. However, I imagine that this has been broached by at least a few groups.

The archives, by the way, are searchable and a wonderful place to mine information about bees and researchers:
For example you might do a search on the name of your state/province/region to see who might working in your area.

turn to dust again.
Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and
the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the
Wherefore I perceive that there is nothing better,
than that a man should rejoice in his own works; for
that is his portion: for who shall bring him to see
what shall be after him?
