What's the latest in the research regarding the relationship between honey bees (apis) and BT?

Asked December 5, 2013, 8:37 AM EST

Is apis still considered to be immune to BT? Is there any research regarding field bees bringing BT back into the hive? Thanks

As far as I am aware there are no conclusive tests that Bt corn is having a negative effect on honey bees. In a recent search, I found the following research study from Germany that looks to be well done and showed no effect. Please see: http://www.gmo-safety.eu/database/1038.effects-maize-honeybees.html
