Bees Test Negative for Pesticides

BeeSHERWOOD, Ore. — Following up on the dead honeybees found in a Sherwood, the Oregon Department of Agriculture says tests show they did not die from pesticides.

Agricultural experts say the results lend more weight to the theory that the bees were killed by passing cars as a swarm from nearby hives crossed a busy highway.

Oregon State University tested for 230 active ingredients, all came back as non-detectable.
