No Through Road
Sometimes It’s Good Just To Stop And Think !

Honeybees’ ability to find flowers could be hampered by a chemical in diesel exhaust, says a study by¬†University of Southampton neuroscientists.

Tests showed that exhaust degraded some floral scent chemicals the bees “home in on” when they are foraging. The study, published in Scientific Reports, also revealed that a specific group of chemicals found in diesel exhaust, known as NOx, diminished the insects’ response to floral scents.
