New popular article in Austria's biggest beekeeping magazine "Bienen aktuell" on the Austrian INSIGNIA results from 2019 is out now. In 2019, 5 citizen scientists with 3 hives each participated.
We found that APIStrips together with beebread are the most promising matrices for detecting pesticides in beehives. Further, we've chosen APIStrips for 2020, as they turned out to be more user-friendly.
A total of 84 different substances were found in Austrian samples.
Let's see what 2020 samples from 9 beekeepers with 2 hives each will reveal.
