Bayer CropScience celebrates the opening of Clayton Bee Care Center

ribbon cuttingBuilt by Diamond Contracting, Inc. of Garner, NC  Bayer CropScience celebrated the opening of its new 1,200 square-foot facility at the Clayton Bee Care Center which will create new approaches and solutions to benefit pollinator health and the global food supply.

Situated on 278 acres of land in Johnston County, N.C., the Clayton Bee Care Center boasts a wintering cold room and comprehensive extraction and bee hive maintenance areas to conduct research on honey bee health. This is the first dedicated bee care facility in Clayton, where Bayer CropScience has studied pollinator health for more than three years. The facility will house researchers and developers studying all aspects of honey bee health, including factors affecting proper crop pollination and treating and preventing diseases to create healthier hives and more.

 “We are proud to open our Clayton Bee Care Center, which will help ensure that the hard-working, beneficial honey bee can continue to thrive and provide pollination for foods that we enjoy each day,” said Dick Rogers, apiologist/entomologist and manager of Bayer’s North American Bee Care Center. “Through this facility and Bayer’s Bee Care Program, we are committed to educating the public on the vital role bees play in our backyards, our communities, our crop fields and in our world. Healthy pollinators are incredibly important in creating and maintaining a healthy, nutritious and sustainable food supply, and we are excited about the strides that Bayer will and is already making in protecting global bee health.”
