New PoshBee video shows research to measure effects of pesticide exposure to bees and bee larvae
A new PoshBee video titled "PoshBee Research: Testing effects of pesticide exposure to bees and bee larvae" shows different research techniques performed within the project.
PoshBee researcher Piero Onorati presents the different measurements he and his team at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) perform on adult honey bees of the Apis mellifera carnica species and bee larvae to find out the effects on bee health of three categories of agricultural pesticides.
Piero demonstrates different steps of the research process, such as collection of bee larvae, trapping bees using a funnel trap, feeding bee larvae with pesticide solutions, and performance of haemolymph extraction to adult bees.
