EPA’s Office of Pesticide Programs will host a two-part webinar series on July 21st and 28th as part of its series dedicated to pollinator health and habitat. The webinars will focus on advancing the science of assessing risks to bees from pesticides.


The first webinar, Designing and Conducting Bee Studies, will explain the basic elements of the studies EPA uses to assess risks when registering or re-evaluating a pesticide. Featured speakers will include representatives from U.S. EPA, Syngenta, Bayer CropScience, and Wageningen University and Research.


The second webinar, Assessing Risks to Bees from Pesticides, will provide a brief overview of EPA’s tiered process for assessing risks to bees. An explanation of the new approach methodologies for exposure and effect assessments will also be shared; these methods are under development to help reduce reliance on animal testing. Finally, an overview of honeybee colony simulation models will be shared. Featured speakers will be EPA scientists from the Office of Pesticide Programs.


Register for both:

Part 1: Designing and Conducting Bee Studies - July 21 |11:00 am – 12:30 pm EDT

Part 2: Assessing Risks to Bees from Pesticides - July 28 | 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm EDT


Additional webinars on pollinator health and habitat will take place August 18th and September 15th. Details and registration information will be released at a later date.
