    Dr Dave Goulson Discusses The Task Force On Systemic Pesticides

    in Science

    The Task Force on Systemic Pesticides is the response of the scientific community to concern around the impact of systemic pesticides on biodiversity and ecosystems. Its intention is to provide the definitive view of science to inform more rapid and improved decision-making.


    It advises two IUCN Commissions, the Commission on Ecosystem Management and the Species Survival Commission. Its work has been noted by the Subsidiary Body on Scientific, Technical and Technological Advice under the Convention on Biodiversity (CBD) and was brought to the attention of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) – on which four members of the Task Force serve -  in the context of the fast-track thematic assessment of pollinators, pollination and food production.

    Hidden Dangers of Systemic Pesticides on Tulips & Bulbs

    in Environment

    Neonicotinoids have become a household name in the world of gardening as the global decline of our pollinators continues to make headlines. As defined by the US Environmental Protection Agency, neonicotinoids are a class of insecticides with a common mode of action that affects the central nervous system of insects, causing paralysis and death. Mainly used as a seed treatment in agriculture, these systemic pesticides are also found in a myriad of gardening products such as plant treatments and pre-treated nursery plants.
     
    In a recent press release by Friends of the Earth, Neonicotinoids  have been the focus of a plea urging consumers to avoid purchasing “bee-friendly” plants from garden centers in the United States, namely Lowe’s and Home Depot which are two of the largest chains. However, what many people do not know is that bulbs are also treated with these chemicals.

    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!
