Research done at the University of London indicates that worker bees exposed to insecticides in the cultivation of flowers for a prolonged period grow less. The study was published in the Journal of Applied Ecology.

Half the colony studied was exposed to the product. Scientists observed the insects for four months, assessing weight and size. The result of the study was discussed during a conference on bees held in London in early September.
