Boston, MA — Two widely used neonicotinoids—a class of insecticide—appear to significantly harm honey bee colonies over the winter, particularly during colder winters, according to a new study from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH). The study replicated a 2012 finding from the same research group that found a link between low doses of imidacloprid and Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), in which bees abandon their hives over the winter and eventually die. The new study also found that low doses of a second neonicotinoid, clothianidin, had the same negative effect.
“Sub-lethal exposure to neonicotinoids impaired honey bees winterization before proceeding to colony collapse disorder,” Chensheng Lu, Kenneth M. Warchol, Richard A. Callahan, Bulletin of Insectology, online Friday, May 9, 2014
A panel of independent scientists operating as the Task Force on Systemic Pesticides found that neonicotinoids and fipronil are harming the environment, posing a similar threat to the one posed by the pesticide DDT in the 1960s.
Arlyle Waring, a gardener in Montreal’s west end, said she collected samples of eight plants and sent them in to environmental group Friends Of the Earth.
The group collected samples from gardeners in 18 cities in Canada and the U.S. and came back with some alarming results: 51% of the plants collected contained neonicotinoids.
“I sent in eight samples of elysium, salvia, daisies — a number of bee-loving plants,” Waring told CBC Daybreak on Friday.
CBC News contacted Home Depot, Rona and Canadian Tire, but all three stores declined interviews. They said they were looking into the issue.
Waring said that’s not good enough. She said that at the very least, plants containing the bee-killing pesticide should be labelled as such, so gardeners can avoid buying them.
eea.europa.eu/highlights/neonicotinoid-pesticides-are-a-huge The European Commission has decided to ban three neonicotinoid insecticides. These chemicals can harm honeybees, according to a large body of scientific evidence, so the European Environment Agency (EEA) commends the precautionary decision to ban them.
Pesticides linked to bee deaths must be banned, scientists say Neonicotinoids, fipronil linked to ecosystem damage in new report
Pollinators, like bees and butterflies, are heavily affected by pesticides. David Schuit, owner of Saugeen Country Honey near Hannover, Ont., says he has lost more than 65 million bees over two years. (Saugeen Country Honey/Facebook) Frequently, he comes across Canada geese and other bird carcasses on the fields. He said the birds die after eating exposed seeds coated with the pesticide.
Any animal that munches on the plants or seeds is also at risk. There's also soil and water exposure to take into account.
More than 90 per cent of the pesticide goes into the environment rather than the crop, said Goulson.
Farmers who use the product annually build up toxicity in the soil, so the pesticide gets into groundwater and then streams, he said.
Soil contamination also exposes terrestrial animals like earthworms. The study's authors claim pesticides have caused behaviour changes in exposed earthworms, like feeding inhibition, as well as death.
Freshwater snails and water fleas suffer the most from water contamination.
"Essentially, we're contaminating the global environment with highly toxic, highly persistent chemicals," said Goulson. Seventy-five percent of crops humans consume are pollinated by insects, mostly bees.
DDT, which stands for dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane, was a liberally used pesticide in the early 1960s. It was banned in 1972 to protect wildlife and people from its toxic effects. The study points out that some neonics are 5,000 to 10,000 more toxic to bees than DDT.
Health Canada has recommended steps to minimize bee exposure to neonicotinoid during the 2014 spring planting season. The measures for planting treated corn and soybean seeds include:
Pesticides that harm honeybees.
Some common pesticides you may have that are toxic to bees: Orthene (Acephate) Seven (Carbaryl) Diazinon (Spectracide, others) Bayer systemic (Imidacloprid), which gets into the pollen, may cause disorientation and death in bees Ambush, Pounce (Permethrin) Crossfire, Raid Flying Insect Killer (Resmethrin) Bayer systemic which contains imidacloprid is not safe for honeybees and should not be used. It gets into the pollen of the plants and is carried home to the hive.
Neonicotinoid http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neonicotinoid | Neonicotinoids are a class of neuro-active insecticides chemically similar to nicotine. The development of this class of insecticides began with work in the 1980s by Shell and the 1990s by Bayer. The neonicotinoids show reduced toxicity compared to previously used organophosphate and carbamate insecticides. Most neonicotinoids show much lower toxicity in mammals than insects, but some breakdown products are toxic. Neonicotinoids are the first new class of insecticides to be developed in the last 50 years. The neonicotinoid imidacloprid is currently the most widely used insecticide in the world. The neonicotinoid family includes acetamiprid, clothianidin, imidacloprid, nitenpyram, nithiazine, thiacloprid and thiamethoxam. In the late 2000's some kinds of neonicotinoids began to come under increasing scrutiny over potential environmental impacts. The use of neonicotinoids was linked in a range of studies to a number of adverse ecological effects, including honey-bee colony collapse disorder (CCD). Increased scrutiny eventually led to restrictions and bans on the use of different neonicotinoids in several countries.

‹Debby Bruck› the most toxic chemicals in the environment
‹Debby Bruck› 19 years half life of these toxic NEONICS. Goes into the ground water and soil
‹Dr. Bob› What about the recent Virus studies coming out of USDA in Minn.? Is this a reasonable cause of colony collapse?
‹Debby Bruck› once reached dosage, death will occur
‹Debby Bruck› industry has not debated scientific research. VERROA MITES
‹Debby Bruck› in Australia no documentation of these mites. Sustaining same bee collapse as USA
‹Debby Bruck› CALIF ALMOND CROPS largest orchards that need bee pollination
‹Debby Bruck› sustained losses 475,000 bee COLONY loss
‹Dr Wequar› Were bees were flown from Florida to California/
‹Debby Bruck› Bill Rose commercial bee keep. Jeff Anderson
‹Debby Bruck› Yes. They bring the bees in across the country
‹Dr. Bob› wow- those are big numbers!!!!
‹Debby Bruck› THE ORGANIC VIEW SHOW
‹Dr. Bob› did they find the chemicals in the bee bodies????
‹Debby Bruck› Farmers should not apply pesticides when bees are foraging
‹Amnon› 475K bees or 475K colonies?
‹Debby Bruck› Australia sustained losses of same magnitude. Does not make mainstream media
‹Debby Bruck› COLONIES
‹Dr. Bob› yeah but the bees fly miles and your neighbor can be spraying
‹Debby Bruck› Hello Dr K
‹Dr. Bob› telling farmers to stop spraying is a tough row to hoe
‹Debby Bruck› Why do they need to spray?
‹Amnon› Can we create a "bee vacceen" ?
‹Debby Bruck› NEONICS affect butterflies and other pollinators
‹Dr Kulbhushan D› Hello Debby how are you
‹Michelle› Agro-homeopathicists need to be doing a study using something like Tobaccinum on this virus to be able to show it can work in place of these lethal pesticides for this virus
‹Dr. Bob› nicotine is found in all Tabacum species and is the base compound of the pesticides. Tobacco extract has been used for 200 years as an insecticide
‹Amnon› So can make "Little coats and gloves" for bees? NOT !!!
‹Debby Bruck› https://twitter.com/tennekes_tox
‹Debby Bruck› GMO SEEDS dipped in NEONICS
‹Debby Bruck› Hello Cathy
‹Dr Wequar› Do not forget that Big Pharma will go after any thing homeopathic,and those who work on that line. Late Dr Kaviraj was nearly bumped of by goons of a Big Pharma in Australia.
‹Dr. Bob› Dr. Wequar is tragically correct
‹Dr. Bob› Bayer Crop Science did the initial research and hold most of the patents on the Neonic
‹Dr Wequar› May be United nations can one day be good enough to "consent" to homeopathic insecticides. But for now it remains a Pipe Dream
‹Dr. Bob› EPA like FDA is a pawn of industry
‹Michelle› The people of the world would consider the information found in a study of a safe option - Big Pharma will never approve, but we shouldn't seek their approval. We should seek the truth. Every farmer has his or his own choice to make regarding what to use
‹Amnon› If we stop spraying today, will the bees recover?
‹Dr Wequar› Thats exactly where THEY come in. See the video "FOOD INC"
‹Dr Wequar› Well said Debby
