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
In a document titled, “Evaluation of Canadian Bee Mortalities that Coincided with Corn Planting in Spring 2012”, Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) reported some of the events of this historic crisis. “PMRA received a significant number of honeybee mortality reports from the provinces of Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia, Quebec and Ontario. A portion of these mortalities were determined to be associated with spray drift, however, an unusually high number of reports of honey bee mortalities were received from beekeepers in corn growing regions of Ontario and Quebec. The majority of reports were from southern Ontario, involving over 40 beekeepers and 240 different bee yard locations. Additionally, one report was received from Quebec involving eight bee yards. Timing and location of these honey bee mortalities appeared to coincide with planting corn seed treated with insecticides. An evaluation was undertaken to assess whether pesticides may have contributed to the mortalities and whether regulatory action was required. This evaluation focused only on pollinator mortalities that coincided with planting treated corn.
The information evaluated suggests that planting of corn seeds treated with the nitro guanidine insecticides clothianidin and/or thiamethoxam contributed to the majority of the bee mortalities that occurred in corn growing regions of Ontario and Quebec in Spring 2012. The likely route of exposure was insecticide contaminated dust generated during the planting of treated corn seed. The unusual weather conditions in the spring of 2012 were likely also a contributing factor.”
In this special series called “The Neonicotinoid View”, hosts June Stoyer and guest co-host, Tom Theobald, talk to the Vice-President of the Ontario Beekeeper’s Association, Tibor Szabo. Tibor is a 3rd generation beekeeper and the largest queen producer in Canada. Stay tuned!

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).

In this special series called “The Neonicotinoid View”, host, June Stoyer and special guest co-host, Tom Theobald talk to commercial beekeeper, Steve Ellis about an unusual bee mortality event due to corn planting. Steve Ellis owns the Old Mill Honey Company which operates roughly 2,300 hives of bees in Minnesota for honey production and pollination for crops in California. Steve is the secretary of the National Honeybee Advisory Board (NHAB) and has been involved in pesticide issues for the past 15 years.

John's repertoire runs from Cole Porter to Coldplay. As a singer and classically trained pianist, John Jones has been entertaining crowds in the Midwest full-time since 2004. Whether augmented with arrangements of his 150+ self-produced backing tracks or simply playing and singing, his expressive vocals and dynamic piano work have led people to a few common opinions, expressed to John in conversations, emails, and social media posts; "John Jones is full of passion for what he does. It's hard to take your eyes off the energy of his performances. I've never seen so many people dancing in a piano bar."
In addition to his live performance work, John is an internationally-distributed songwriter. R&B/jazz vocalist Maysa Leak (of the British funk group Incognito) has recorded two of his songs for solo projects: "Honeybee" was featured on her 2010 album "A Woman in Love," and the ballad "Everything" appeared on her 2003 release "Out of the Blue." He's released three independent albums of original songs on iTunes and the internet: "Homegrown," "Shine Right Where You Are," and "Everything I Have."

In the world of 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. Data suggests that neonicotinic residues can accumulate in pollen and nectar of treated plants and may represent a potential exposure to pollinators. Adverse effects data as well as beekill incidents have also been reported, highlighting the potential direct and/or indirect effects of neonicotinic pesticides. Therefore, among other refinements to ecological risk assessment during registration review, the Agency will consider potential effects of the neonicotinoids to honeybees and other pollinating insects. Dr. David Goulson, Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of Sterling and his team have conducted new research titled “Neonicotinoid pesticide reduces bumble bee colony growth and queen production.” In this special series called “The Neonicotinoid View”, hosts, June Stoyer and special co- host, Tom Theobald will be joined today by Dr. David Goulson, Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of Sterling to discuss his research.
Tibor Szabo, VP Ontario Beekeepers Association discusses efforts to ban neonicotinoids on The Neonicotinoid View Radio Show with June Stoyer and Tom Theobald.
