Research to create bees without sting
Just imagine bees that don’t sting. Maybe in the near future such bees may swarm around you without stinging you cause they doesn’t have a sting at all. The Tamil Nadu Agriculture University (TNAU) is all set to research on a project to create bees without stings.
The National Resource Development Board of the Department of Biotechnology has sanctioned the project "Morphometry and phylo-geography of honey bees and stingless bees", a press release here said.
Two universities will be involved in the project. The TNAU will work on bio-ecology of stingless bees and evolve improved bee management techniques.
The studies for the three-year project will be done in the states of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh,
The projects will document the biodiversity of the bees in 30 different agro-climatic zones in these states. The genetic makeup of native honeybee species will also be studied in detail for the first time.
