Recently, in the Pacific Northwest, oyster farmers were granted a permit to use the water soluble toxic chemical imidacloprid in Willapa Bay and Grays Harbor. What prompted the Washington Department of Ecology to move forward with this decision? How will this protect oysters and other marine life? In this special series called “The Neonicotinoid View”, host June Stoyer and special guest co-host, Colorado beekeeper, Tom Theobald will talk to Rich Doenges, Water Quality Manager from the Southwest Regional Office, Department of Ecology, State of Washington about this decision.

Later on in the show, scientist, Rich Andrews will join the discussion to talk about Colony Collapse Disorder otherwise known as CCD. Lately, there have been a number of discussions about CCD and there still is a great deal of confusion as to what exactly the term means. Stay tuned!
