Following reports of bee deaths near Indiana corn fields at planting time, sampling of dead bees and several potential exposure sources revealed neonicotinoid insecticides used to treat corn and soybean seed were often present, sometimes in very high concentrations. Dr. Krupke was the lead researcher in the recently published Purdue Study. This research was the ground breaking research, shows an astounding connection between neonicotinoid exposure and bee losses.
Tune in to this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, as host, June Stoyer is joined by special guest, Dr. Christian Krupke to talk about the impact of neonicotinoids on bees! Stay tuned!
