Larry Millet receives USDA funding through Tennessee Department of Agriculture to combat honey bee decline through technological innovations

Dr. Millet, a Research Scientist in the Center for Environmental Biotechnology at the University of Tennessee Knoxville established an agreement or contractual relationship (2019-2022) with the State Department of Agriculture to lead and execute a project for new efforts to combat honey bee devastation in Tennessee and beyond.  Dr. Millet and his team of student are innovating, testing, and implementing technological innovations to reduce or eliminate insect pests to lower colony stress and the burden of disease inside the hive.  He uses biological, behavioral, and environmental observations to guide technological innovations and scientifically based practical measures to understand how insects influence over-wintering of honey bee colonies.
