Has there been any studies on hive losses in non agriculture areas verses agriculture areas in respect to chemical damage.

not that I have seen,  and I have looked.  The only information I had at all was from jeff petis,  and it showed no real differences in percentages.  In fact states like GA and CA show higher losses,  but its hard to balance as numbers are not adequately collected.

From my very informal studies,  its got a lot more to do with skills and experience than location and forage.
