Bees Used To Deliver Pest Control
Ever heard of “bee vectoring”? Researchers have apparently been working on the idea for 20 years. The idea is to use commercially-reared bees to deliver organic crop control compounds as they pollinate crops.
  Specially-designed hives apply powdered organic compounds to bees as they exit the hive. While going about their business, the compounds for controlling pests and disease rub off on the plants.
  The method has been tested on blueberries, strawberries, almond trees, and other high-value crops. It has also been successfully used on sunflower crops.
  Bee Vectoring Technology is gearing up with financing to bring their process to market. Located in Missasagua, Ontario, you can find out more at http://www.beevt.com/ or by calling ph 647 660-5119.
