Hey there folks. We are still trying to maintain a certain focus on the things we post on here at the Bee Smart beekeeping project on a weekly basis.
This week, we’re going to pay a bit more attention to bees and pesticides. Both the Crossword and Wordsearch puzzles are based on this topic and Big Bear will be doing a video doing a mini “class” on the subject as well.
Hop on over to the website forums and share your ideas and experiences having to do with bees and pesticides in your little piece of the world. We’d love to see you there.

According to Chris Mullin, professor of entomology, Penn State, adjuvants in general greatly improve the efficacy of pesticides by enhancing their toxicities.
