Honey Bee Lead at Monsanto - author of "The Classroom: Beekeeping Questions and Answers".
After attending Ohio State University. Agricultural and Technical Institute, Jerry went to the USDA/ARS Bee Breeding and Stock Lab, which in those days was preparing for the African bee to move across the border and enter the United States.
Next he went to Dadant, and while with them he started writing the “Classroom” Q&A column for the American Bee Journal, a Dadant publication.
From 2004 until 2012, Mr. Hayes was the Chief of the Apiary Inspection Section of the Florida Department of Agriculture.
Currently at Monsanto, he is working with a technology that uses a normal natural process called RNA to see if it can be adapted to control honey bee parasites and pathogens safely, sanely and efficaciously.
