Ontario funds research on pesticides and bee health

By , April 27, 2014

Happy to report that the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture is funding our research on “The effects of sublethal neonicotinoid exposure on brain state and behaviour of honey bee workers”. We will study how exposure to some common neonicotinoid pesticides affect the brain state of honey bees, and how it affects aspects of their spatial memory and immunity.

Our research was one of five projects funded by Ontario to help investigate the province’s alarming bee declines.
