    The Neonicotinoid View: The Role of Pesticides In Honeybees

    in Environment

    A study has been conducted by Dr. Brian Eitzer and his team from the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station which analyzed the impact of pesticides on honeybee health.
    According to the EPA’s definition, a pesticide is “any substance or mixture of substances intended for: preventing, destroying, repelling, or mitigating any pest. Though often misunderstood to refer only to insecticides, the term pesticide also applies to herbicides, fungicides, and various other substances used to control pests.
    Under United States law, a pesticide is also any substance or mixture of substances intended for use as a plant regulator, defoliant, or desiccant.”
    In the world of agriculture and especially in beekeeping ,  neonicotinoids have maintained the spotlight as the scientific evidence continues to grow regarding the decline of the world’s bee population. Neonicotinoids are defined by the EPA as a class of insecticides with a common mode of action that affects the central nervous system of insects, causing paralysis and death. All of the neonicotinoids were registered after 1984 and were not subject to reregistration. Some uncertainties have been identified since their initial registration regarding the potential environmental fate and effects of neonicotinoid pesticides, particularly as they relate to pollinators.
    In this special series called “The Neonicotinoid View”, hosts, June Stoyer and Tom Theobald will speak to Dr. Brian Eitzer from the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station about his research. Stay tuned!

    This week there were two major conference calls created to discuss efforts to help pollinators. One was hosted by Cornell, the other EPA. Did Cornell’s efforts to host a discussion about IPM and pollinators help? Was EPA’s stakeholder’s listening session fruitful? Will these efforts help beekeepers protect honeybees during next year’s pollination?


    In Canada, there is also quite a stir in Ontario. What is the new controversy surrounding Ontario beekeepers? What is going on with the class action law suit filed by the Ontario Bee Association against Bayer and Syngenta?


    In this special series called “The Neonicotinoid View”, host June Stoyer and special guest co-host, Colorado beekeeper, Tom Theobald, discuss these issues and will be joined by Tibor Szabo, the incoming President of the Ontario Beekeeper’s Association. Stay tuned!

    The Neonicotinoid View: The Harvard Study On Pesticides

    in Environment

     
    In this special series called “The Neonicotinoid View”, host, June Stoyer, will be joined by special guest 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 is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health, Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University.  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.  Dr. Lu’s current research projects include; 1) exploring the feasibility of assessing pesticide exposure using saliva as a biomarker, 2) assessing children’s aggregate pesticide exposures in a longitudinal manner, 3) investigation the variation of dietary consumption patterns and the corresponding pesticide exposure, and 4) estimating absorbed pesticide dose in children and farm worker population using Exposure-Related Dose Estimating Model.  Dr. Lu currently serves as an ad hoc member on the US EPA Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) Scientific Advisory Panel, and an ad hoc member on the National Institute for Occupational Health and Safety (NIOSH) grant peer-review panel.
