    The Neonicotinoid View: Tom Theobald Discusses Sulfoxaflor

    in Environment

    Sulfoxaflor is a new systemic pesticide from the sulfamine family. While it is not a neonicotinoid, it is systemic pesticide that targets the same neural receptors as the neonicotinoids. Without any prior notice to beekeepers, the EPA announced in June 2012, that it would grant a section 18 (emergency permission to use an unregistered product) for use on cotton in four southern states: Arkansas, Mississippi, Tennessee and Louisiana. The EPA has recently announced the opening of the public comment period on sulfoxaflor. The EPA plans to grant sulfoxaflor a conditional registration despite many serious unresolved questions as to its safety and consequences not only for the honeybees but for the wider environment as well. Is this a repeat process, or lack thereof, regarding the neonicotinoid,  Clothianidin?
    In this special series called “The Neonicotinoid View”, host, June Stoyer talks to beekeeper and bee advocate, Tom Theobald about the controversy surrounding the conditional registration of this pesticide. Stay tuned!

    The Neonicotinoid View: Ruthless Power & Deleterious Politics

    in Environment

    For many years, DDT was considered to be a popular chemical. It was used to control insect pests on crop and forest lands, around homes, gardens as well as  industrial and commercial purposes. Today, a new family of chemicals called neonicotinoid pesticides are even more toxic than DDT and are polluting the earth with even more deadly consequences.  In this special series called “The Neonicotinoid View”, which is produced by The Organic View Radio Show, host June Stoyer and special guest co-host, Colorado beekeeper, Tom Theobald talk to former EPA analyst, Dr. Evaggelos Vallianatos. Stay tuned! Evaggelos Vallianatos, Ph.D., is a former EPA analyst. He is the author of hundreds of articles and several books, including “Poison Spring: The Secret History of Pollution and the EPA” (with McKay Jenkins, Bloomsbury Press, 2014).

    Looking Back 2 Yrs Ago: Tom Theobald Discusses Clothianidin

    in Environment

    In this special encore edition of The Organic View Radio show, tune in to see how far we have come to understand the impact of neonicotinoids on pollinators. This is the very first interview with Tom Theobald who is a commercial beekeeper, honeybee health advocate and special guest co-host of The Neonicotinoid View Radio Show (which airs each Wednesday).
     
    More than 100 agricultural crops in the United States are pollinated by bees. 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, commercial beekeeper, President and founding board member of the Boulder County Beekeepers' Association and guest co-host of The Neonicotinoid View Radio Show about the impact of this devastating chemical. Stay tuned!
