How Your Bee-Friendly Garden May Actually Be Killing Bees | Science

How Your Bee-Friendly Garden May Actually Be Killing Bees | Science | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Even as they try to help the bees, people may inadvertently poison them by planting pesticide-laden plants purchased from big-box garden centers, suggests a new report.


More than half of ostensibly bee-friendly plants sampled at Home Depot, Lowe's and Walmart garden centers contained high levels of neonicotinoids, which are considered highly toxic to bees, butterflies and other insect pollinators.

Nature inspires drones of the future

Nature inspires drones of the future | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Researchers have been taking tips from nature to build the next generation of flying robots. Based on the mechanisms adopted by birds, bats, insects and snakes, scientists have developed solutions to some of the common problems that drones could be faced with when navigating through an urban environment and performing novel tasks for the benefit of society.

Leslie G Perry's curator insight, May 26, 4:49 PM
