In 1986 Hesse-Honegger began to document the effects of the fallout from the Chernobyl disaster in the Ukraine, making studies of insects affected by the radiation plume that spread across Europe. 

This study developed into a long term enquiry investigating and documenting in watercolour insects found on the perimeters of nuclear power stations including Sellafield in Cumbria, Three Mile Island in the USA and the Canton of Aargau in Switzerland.
