Living History Farm: Pesticide Research

While writing When Flowers Weep, I performed a significant amount of research on colony collapse disorder as well as the history of pesticides and how we came to use them.  Google and Wiki’s were of course instrumental, but I found this site particular interesting. It helped me become more empathic and added polish to my writing of story.

For anyone interested in how we came to use pesticides, I highly encourage the read.
