ZomBee Watch

Help scientists learn about zomblie flies killing honey bees.
Spot, record, share sightings of dead honeybees.

The Museum is partnering with San Francisco State University's Department of Biology to learn more about the zombie fly, Apocephalus borealis, and how this parasitoid (like a parasite, except they always kill their host) affects honey bees, Apis mellifera. You can join this investigation by becoming a ZomBee Hunter!
