Company Raises $3 Million to Commercialize Harmless, Water-Free Organic Pesticide

Bee Vectoring Technology has secured $3.1 million in financing to commercialize its patented crop targeting solution.

The Vancouver-based agriculture-tech company, which is slated to become listed publicly on the  TSX Venture next week, offers a solution which utilises commercially reared bumblebees as natural delivery mechanisms for their proprietary powdered organic pesticides.

Bee Vectoring Technology’s solution was developed over eight years and is entirely natural, harming neither bees nor humans, and also needing no water. Basically, bees walk through trays of organic pest controls before leaving their hive, which sticks to bees’ legs and hair; then, through pollination, the bees deliver a bacterium or virus to its intended destination.
