Insignia study setup 2019

In 2019, four different methods to sample pesticides and pollen diversity will be tested and compared in four countries (Austria, Denmark, England, Greece). The tests will be made by citizen scientists, which need three honey bee colonies on one apiary.

Here is a very rough scheme of the study setup!

In 2019, three colonies will be used per apiary. Two of them will have pollen traps installed, the third one will be sampled with different methods.
