Research supported by the Canada Research Excellence Fund through Food from Thought has found that ground-nesting bees, such as squash bees, may be exposed to lethal levels of pervasive insecticides found in soil on farms across southern Ontario.

This research, led by principal investigator prof. Nigel Raine, is featured in numerous national news outlets such as Global News, Science Daily, Globe and Mail, and Toronto Star.
