    Dr Alex Lu Discusses The Harvard Study On Honeybees & Neonicotinoids -Part 1

    in Science

    Due to the recent publicity given to Harvard's Dr. Alex Lu regarding his latest research titled, "Sub-lethal Exposure To Neonicotinoids Impaired Honeybees Winterization Before Proceeding To Colony Collapse Disorder" we are airing this encore presentation of the interview so that our listeners who are new to the controversy can have an opportunity to hear the previous interview.


    In this special series called “The Neonicotinoid View”, host, June Stoyer, will be joined by special guest co-host, Tom Theobald, to talk to Dr. Chensheng (Alex) Lu, Associate Professor of Environmental Exposure Biology at Harvard about his research on honeybees and neonicotinoids. Dr. Lu's primary research interest is in the area of pesticide exposure and health risk assessment using biological monitoring approach. Dr. Lu is developing a research program integrating novel exposure assessment tools, physiologically-base pharmacokinetic models and cumulative risk assessment models.

    The Fatal Sting of Clothianidin On Honeybees

    in Environment

    Honeybees pollinate 1/3 of all of our agricultural food as well as other important crops such as cotton that are used for textiles. Without them, life as we know it would cease to exist. Any fatal impact on the honeybee would create a monumental disaster. Clothianidin has been widely used as a seed treatment on many of the USA’s key crops (which include canola, soy, sunflowers, wheat and sugar beet crops) for eight growing seasons under a conditional registration granted while EPA waited for Bayer Crop Science, the pesticide’s maker, to conduct a field study assessing the insecticide’s threat to bee colony health. The EPA has moved from granting a conditional registration to full registration of this chemical just in time for the spring planting. Clothianidin is of the neonicotinoid family of systemic pesticides, which are taken up by a plant’s vascular system and expressed through pollen, nectar and gutation droplets from which bees then forage and drink. Scientists are concerned about the mix and cumulative effects of the multiple pesticides bees are exposed to in these ways. Neonicotinoids are of particular concern because they have cumulative, sublethal effects on insect pollinators that correspond to CCD symptoms – namely, neurobehavioral and immune system disruptions.
    In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer will speak to Tom Theobald, Master Beekeeper, President and founding board member of the Boulder County Beekeepers' Association about the impact of this devastation chemical. Stay tuned!

    Are There Any Neonicotinoid Free Food Sources For Honeybees?

    in Environment

    There is a great deal of concern that our honeybees do not have enough food to eat because of the amount of pesticides being used. However, most homeowners do not realize that their demand for pristine lawns and continuously flowering plants that have low to zero maintenance are a huge part of the problem. The lack of food not only effect honeybees but other pollinators such as butterflies. Are we sacrificing sources of food so that our yards can be free from the site of plants such as clover, and dandelions, etc? Even roadside maintenance poses an issue as wildflowers and other beneficial plants are mowed down for aesthetics. Is there anything we can really do to keep our yards looking nice and not take away food from pollinators? In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer talks to Dr. Vera Krischik about how we can help pollinators by practicing IPM (Integrated Pest Management) and take an active role in replenishing available food sources. Dr. Krischik is an Associate Professor in the Dept. of Entomology at the U of Minnesota and an Extension Specialist in Landscape Integrated Pest Management (IPM).

    The Benefits of Propolis To The Immune System of Honeybees.

    in Environment

    Dr. Marla Spivak will be my guest on The Organic View to discuss her work with honeybees and the benefits of propolis to the immune system of honey bees. Dr. Spivak’s interest in bees began when she worked for a commercial beekeeper from New Mexico in 1975. She later completed her B.A. in Biology from Humboldt State University in northern California, and her PhD from the University of Kansas, under Dr. Orley “Chip” Taylor, in 1989. She spent two years in Costa Rica conducting her thesis research on the identification and ecology of Africanized and European honeybees. From 1989-1992 she did post-doctoral research at the Center for Insect Science at the University of Arizona. She began as Assistant Professor at the University of Minnesota in 1993. Influenced by Martha Gilliam and Steve Taber from the USDA Bee lab in Tucson, she became interested in hygienic behavior of honeybees. This interest has expanded into studies of “social immunity”, including the benefits of propolis to the immune system of honeybees.
