The CCD Challenge for Pesticide Safety

Apiaries in all farms that use pesticides serve multiple benefits. The honey is a source of vital nutrition for farm families, and a means of incremental income as well. Besides, honeybees at the individual farm level may have better immunity to viral and mite attacks than strains transported commercially over long distances. Here is a link which points in such a direction:

It is time to merge honeybees with IPM. Spray schedules need to change so that honeybees are not threatened. CCD also requires remediation. Endogram, Endocel, and Endosulfan-tolerant Chrysoperla form a profitable triad of pest management measures that can conserve honeybee populations at the same time.

I have launched a program for the use of Endogram, Endocel, and Endosulfan-tolerant Chrysoperla, with simultaneous apiary development. The program requires training in pesticide safety, remediation of contamination, and honey production.  The program has started in Northern India, and is available for extension anywhere. It takes about a year from start to making the program operational. You can avail of the pesticide safety benefits and economic gains by posting below. You can also write to
