Bee Vectoring Technology: A company aiming to reduce pesticide usage by using bees as vectors for organic pesticides

Hey guys,

this maybe a unusual post, but I'd like to hear your expertise on this one.

So a few days ago I heard about this Canadian company called Bee Vectoring Technology. In short, they're using bees to deliver an organic pesticide, a naturally ocurring fungus, to the plants they're pollinating. The fungus is granulated and put in trays so everytime a bee or bumblebee leaves its hive it's carrying the fungus to innoculate the plants. This way farmers have to use way less pesticides.

Here's a video explaing the tech more precisely:

Since I'm no beekeeper myself, I'd like to hear your opinions on this. It's a publicly traded company and I'd like to invest. I'm not asking for financial advice. Only for your technical knowledge of this topic.

As I see it, it has great potential for beekeepers and farmers to work together to increase crop yields and reduce pesticide burdens on our environment. As I've heard many times, neonicotinoids are a danger to bees and it would be great if we can shift away from using them. So naturally, I'd like to support this company.

Thanks for reading 🙂
