Very interesting article @Martydallas
Thanks for the link
It’s amazing what research finds by accident
If it works every top board could be equipped with near infra red lights
Then the pesticide companies could throw their neonics about willy nilly.
Pity about the other wild pollinators that are responsible for most pollination.
However, the findings are interesting insofar as this light therapy seems to improve wellbeing in bees and people.

Well I’m extremely cynical about this. I hope Bayer Is not funding this. I.e. creating a problem and then creating another fix for the problem so they catch you from both ends.
