What effects does urban beekeeping have on wild bee populations? This is what a new study that looked at the negative effects of urban honeybee rearing on wild bee populations and was published in Peerj intends to solve. The findings of the study, which involved the analysis of data from locations on the island of Montreal from the years 2013 and 2020, were very amazing.“We found that the sites with the largest increase in honeybee populations across sites and years also had the fewest wild bee species,” said Dr. Gail MacInnis, who is a research scientist at the GPRC-CRI National Bee Research Center but conducted the study as a postdoctoral researcher at Concordia University, and lead author of the study.
