    The Neonicotinoid View: Will New Strategy Protect Bees Or Industry?

    in Environment

    Last month, the White House announced a new strategy to protect pollinators. However, last year, President Obama issued a Presidential Memorandum directing an interagency Task Force to create a Strategy to Promote the Health of Honey Bees and Other Pollinators.  Has any progress been made? Beekeepers, bee advocates and concerned citizens are concerned that this is an effort to appease them while enabling industry to continue to sell neonicotinoids. 


    In this special series called “The Neonicotinoid View”, hosts, June Stoyer and Colorado beekeeper, Tom Theobald will continue the discussion about this year's repetitive announcement from the White House to protect bees and review the efforts that have been made to raise awareness about neonicotinoids over the last decade.

    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!

    If Anything Should Be Outlawed, One of Them Should Be Pesticides/Herbicides!

    in Entertainment

    I am going to read a couple of articles that will help prove the dangers of using things like, Good Ole, Round Up! Around your yard and family, including pets. The dangers of these chemicals is way more than is ever advertised to the general public.


    In our neighborhood we are pressured by the land owners to use pesticides regularly. The dangers of this are high in such close neighbor borders. If one or two neighbors use things like Round Up, we are going to have the affects of the poison too!

    The Neonicotinoid View: Have Pollinator Health Issues Been Resolved?

    in Environment

    Almost a year ago, a Presidential Memorandum was issued in June requesting that all federal agencies work together to develop a cohesive plan for pollinator protection. Recently, it was reported that just over 40% of US Colonies had to be replaced last year which is interesting considering that commercial beekeepers reported losses approaching 90% over the course of the year. Has EPA and USDA created a resolution for protecting pollinators?


    In this special series called “The Neonicotinoid View”, host June Stoyer and special guest co-host, Colorado beekeeper, Tom Theobald talk to Michele Colopy, Program Director, Executive Director of the Pollinator Stewardship Council. Stay tuned!
