Abstract

Bees are an integral part of the environment as they play an important role as pollinators for many types of agricultural products. This makes it essential for us to successfully extract the genetic material from wild bees, which allows us to better evaluate the genetics and longevity of bee populations. It is important to know how different field collection and storage methods will reduce the quantity and quality of the genetic material, and at what rate the DNA in collected specimen will deteriorate over time.
