 Considering the report is from France it could of course be wrong and warrant a UN inspection  wink

I had bees in the city for 26 years.  I would tend to agree.  It's not that you don't get pesticides in town.  My biggest problem with pesticides was when they would fog for mosquitoes at 2:00 pm.  Why?  I don't know.  I never saw a mosquito out that time of day.  But other than that the bees in town have always done well even in a drought and usually don't get mass sprayed like the ones in the country.  I see crop dusters all the timeout here in the country and have lost many bees to pesticides some years.

Here  a Japan biologist has made research from  Japanese honeybee
Apis cerana japonica in  Osaka  city.  Bees get along better in City than on countryside.

A lot of pictures.
