Bee Research Demonstrates Pesticide Residue Effects

From the National Sustainable Agriculture information Service:

Research by graduate student Judy Wu, published in the online journal PLoS One, demonstrates the sub-lethal effects of pesticide residue exposure on honey bees, which play a critical role in the production of one third of the food that humans consume. Wu found that low levels of pesticides build up in honey bee brood comb wax and cause serious consequences for developing worker bees and the adult worker bee lifespan. The pesticides involved in Wu's study include those used by beekeepers, growers and homeowners. They include miticides, insecticides, fungicides and herbicides. In addition, according to Wu's study, longer development time for bees may provide a reproductive advantage for Varroa destructor mites.

For many of us finding local, healthy, and sustainable food is vitally important.  But what about our trusted best friends?  Shouldn't our dogs and cats receive the same benefits.  That is why I am in the process of starting a local, free range, and organic raw pet food line.  I am trying to get as much market info as possible so if you would be interested in buying the product or have any suggestions on developing the business please let me know.
