Hello.
My husband and I run a small apiary (10 hives +/- ) in norther Virginia about 10 miles outside of DC. We've been active for about 4 years, and are approaching beekeeping in an organic, non-medicating fashion. So far, this has been labor intensive, but successful and rewarding.
My particular interest is in finding out more about the effects of water and airborne chemicals, like Atrazine (herbicide) and Bacillus thuringiensis ('Bt') (gypsy moth spraying) on honeybees, and how they might relate to CCD, AND, by extension, the effect of such toxins on humans.
If you have any ideas or sources, I'd love to know about them.
Thanks! :)Andrea
