Myth-BUSTING  ―  There Is NO Bee Crisis

 

Summary

 

 

According to the results of the Syngenta FIELD STUDIES conducted in various different regions in France between 2005 and 2010  ―

 

•   Exposure, and hence risk, to honey bees from Neonicotinoid Insecticides is LOW UNDER REAL IN-USE FIELD CONDITIONS.

 

•   FIELD STUDIES ADD CONSIDERABLE VALUE TO THE UNDERSTANDING OF RISK TO BEES UNDER REAL IN-USE FIELD CONDITIONS.

 

•   FIELD STUDIES showed Neonicotinoid Insecticides DO NOT POSE A THREAT TO BEE HEALTH AT DOSES TYPICALLY USED IN THE FIELD.

 

•   FIELD STUDIES showed NO EVIDENCE OF DETRIMENTAL EFFECTS ON COLONIES THAT WERE REPEATEDLY EXPOSED to Neonicotinoid Insecticides.

 

•   FIELD STUDIES showed THERE IS A LOW RISK TO HONEY BEES FROM SYSTEMIC RESIDUES IN NECTAR AND POLLEN following the use Neonicotinoid Insecticides.

 

•   Many European Union [ EU ] Member Nations have stated that Syngenta provided THE BEST FIELD STUDIES THEY HAD EVER SEEN.

 

•   Prior risk assessment based on LABORATORY DATA ALONE, however, WILL NOT PROVIDE CRITICAL INFORMATION ON REALISTIC EXPOSURE OR BEHAVIOUR OF BEES following actual use of Neonicotinoid Insecticides under normal agronomical conditions.

 

•   The European Union Commission has FORCED THROUGH A SUSPENSION [ a.k.a. PROHIBITION ] despite the fact that the MEMBER NATIONS FAILED TO REACH A DEFINITIVE DECISION [ and MOST DID NOT WANT PROHIBITION ].

 

•   The European Union Commission IMPOSED PROHIBITION against Neonicotinoid Insecticides on the basis of a FLAWED PROCESS, an INACCURATE and INCOMPLETE ASSESSMENT by the European Union Food Safety Authority, and WITHOUT THE FULL SUPPORT OF EU MEMBER NATIONS.

 

•   The manufacturers of Neonicotinoid Insecticides launched a LEGAL CHALLENGE against the decision by the European Union Commission to IMPOSE PROHIBITION against their products.

 

•   The process to review the Syngenta FIELD STUDIES was EXTREMELY RIGOROUS and TOOK ALMOST A YEAR TO COMPLETE.

Myth-BUSTING  ―  There Is NO Bee Crisis

 

Field Studies Show That Neonicotinoid Insecticides Are Low Risk To Bees

 

 

Neonicotinoid Insecticides DO NOT POSE A THREAT TO BEE HEALTH AT DOSES TYPICALLY USED IN THE FIELD, according to the results from extensive FIELD STUDIES carried out by Syngenta in France.

 

Syngenta, which markets seeds and pest control products, is a company with annual sales of 11.6 billion dollars, and which employs over 27,000 people in over 90 countries.

 

Syngenta hopes the results of the FIELD STUDIES, which were finally published after a protracted peer review process, will help FILL THE DATA GAP on the impact of Neonicotinoid Insecticides in the field and REINFORCE THE CASE for their continued use in Europe.

 

The FIELD STUDIES were conducted in various different regions in France between 2005 and 2010 to support the Syngenta’s application to use Cruiser, a Neonicotinoid Insecticide, as a seed treatment on maize and oil-seed rape in the European Union.

 

In one part of the FIELD STUDIES, results showed the residue levels of thiamethoxam [ the active ingredient in Cruiser ] in pollen and nectar collected by from fields TREATED with the product were « TYPICAL ».

 

In the other part of the FIELD STUDIES, results showed NO EVIDENCE OF DETRIMENTAL EFFECTS ON BEE COLONIES THAT WERE REPEATEDLY EXPOSED to residues in pollen and nectar of the Neonicotinoid Insecticide thiamethoxam over a four-year period, following seed treatment of maize and oil-seed rape.

 

Various measures of bee colony health, including mortality, foraging behaviour, colony strength and weight and food storage levels, were compared in the FIELD STUDIES.

 

The results were found to be BROADLY SIMILAR with colonies located NEAR THE TREATED CROPS, and with colonies located NEAR UN-TREATED CROPS.

 

In the following spring, the FIELD STUDIES also showed that colonies exposed to the TREATED CROPS were able to SUCCESSFULLY OVER-WINTER, and had a SIMILAR HEALTH STATUS when compared with colonies located NEAR UN-TREATED CROPS.

 

According to the study’s researchers, in a paper published in the scientific journal Plos One  ―

 

We conclude that these data demonstrate THERE IS A LOW RISK TO HONEY BEES FROM SYSTEMIC RESIDUES IN NECTAR AND POLLEN following the use of thiamethoxam as a seed treatment on oil-seed rape and maize.

Myth-BUSTING  ―  There Is NO Bee Crisis

 

Reckless Prohibition In The European Union

 

 

Cruiser was one of three Neonicotinoid Insecticides that will be SUSPENDED [ i.e. PROHIBITED ] across the European Union for two years, from December 1st, 2013, AGAINST SEED TREATMENTS ON CROPS THAT ARE ATTRACTIVE TO BEES.

 

The SUSPENSION [ a.k.a. PROHIBITION ] was FORCED THROUGH by the European Union Commission AFTER MEMBER NATIONS FAILED TO REACH A DEFINITIVE DECISION [ and MOST DID NOT WANT PROHIBITION ].

 

The SUSPENSION was based upon research showing various so-called « SUB-LETHAL EFFECTS » on bees exposed to the chemicals in LABORATORY EXPERIMENTS, including reduced colony growth and impaired foraging and homing behaviour.

 

 

 

――――――――――――――――――――

 

 

 

Myth-BUSTING  ―  There Is NO Bee Crisis

 

Neonicotinoid Insecticide Exposure Is Low Under Real Field Conditions

 

 

Syngenta, backed by the Government of the United Kingdom, and the farming industry, has argued that previous LABORATORY EXPERIMENTS USED MUCH HIGHER DOSES THAN WOULD BE DEPLOYED IN THE FIELD.

 

The results from Syngenta’s large-scale FIELD STUDIES provide a different conclusion to these laboratory because  …

 

Exposure, and hence risk, to honey bees from systemic thiamethoxam [ a Neonicotinoid Insecticide ] residues in pollen and nectar following seed treatments IS LOW UNDER REAL IN-USE FIELD CONDITIONS.

 

Syngenta said its FIELD STUDIES were « UNIQUE » and THE FIRST TO « DIRECTLY INVESTIGATE THE DATA GAP REGARDING POTENTIAL OVER-WINTERING EFFECTS ON HONEYBEE COLONIES IN THE FIELD ».

 

Researchers acknowledged the limitations of FIELD STUDIES of this magnitude conducted over a number of years.

 

Challenges included finding suitable trial sites with sufficient distance between the UN-TREATED and TREATED plots that separated from other INSECTICIDE-TREATED sites, and accounting for high bee colony losses caused by other factors, such as loss of healthy egg-laying queens and background disease.

 

But researchers said  ―

 

Risk assessment based on LABORATORY DATA ALONE, however, WILL NOT PROVIDE CRITICAL INFORMATION ON REALISTIC EXPOSURE OR BEHAVIOUR OF BEES following actual use of the pesticide [ Neonicotinoid Insecticides ] under normal agronomical conditions.

 

Therefore, while there can be limitations and challenges with regards to conducting and interpreting FIELD TRIALS, the information generated ADDS CONSIDERABLE VALUE TO OUR UNDERSTANDING OF RISK UNDER REAL IN-USE FIELD CONDITIONS.

The Best Field Study Ever Seen

 

 

A Syngenta spokesman said the research had been described by many European Union Member Nations as  …

 

…  the best field study they had ever seen.

 

The Syngenta spokesman also said  ―

 

We would have preferred to see this data published sooner in order for it to form part of the debate ahead of the Commission’s decision to restrict neonicotinoid use in some contexts but, quite rightly, THE JOURNAL’S REVIEW PROCESS IS EXTREMELY RIGOROUS AND TOOK ALMOST A YEAR TO COMPLETE.

Legal Challenge Against Prohibition Of Neonicotinoid Insecticides

 

 

Syngenta, along with Bayer, are facing the loss of key products due to the SUSPENSION [ a.k.a. PROHIBITION ] in the European Union.

 

Consequently, Syngenta and Bayer launched a LEGAL CHALLENGE against the decision to SUSPEND [ i.e. PROHIBIT ] Neonicotinoid Insecticides.

 

The companies claim that the European Union Commission decided to IMPOSE PROHIBITION against Neonicotinoid Insecticides on the basis of  …

 

…  a FLAWED PROCESS, an INACCURATE and INCOMPLETE ASSESSMENT by the European Union Food Safety Authority, and WITHOUT THE FULL SUPPORT OF EU MEMBER NATIONS.

 

It has filed its LEGAL CHALLENGE against the Commission at the European Union General Court in Luxembourg.

 

No date has been set yet for a hearing.

 

The DECISION TO SUSPEND [ i.e. PROHIBIT ] the three Neonicotinoid Insecticides will be REVIEWED in 2015.

Myth-BUSTING  ―  There Is NO Bee Crisis

 

Key Findings

 

 

One part of the FIELD STUDIES looked at residue levels in pollen and nectar collected from bees exclusively foraging in flowering thiamethoxam SEED-TREATED maize and oil-seed rape [ thiamethoxam a.k.a. Cruiser, a Neonicotinoid Insecticide ].

 

The FIELD STUDIES found thiamethoxam residue levels were « TYPICALLY LOW » with median values between less than 1 and 7 µg/kg for pollen and less than 0.5 and 4 µg/kg for nectar.

 

These were MUCH LOWER than the doses that showed sub-lethal effects in the laboratory studies.

 

Residues in hive samples were CONSISTENTLY LOWER than residues in pollen and nectar samples collected from bees, indicating dilution and/or degradation of residue in the hive following collection.

 

In the other part of the FIELD STUDIES considered the long-term risk to honey bee colonies from four years consecutive single treatment crop exposures to flowering maize and oil-seed rape grown from thiamethoxam-TREATED seeds [ Cruiser, a Neonicotinoid Insecticide ].

 

Bee colony health was compared with bee colonies located near UN-TREATED fields.

 

During the exposure period, when bee colonies were placed adjacent to TREATED and UN-TREATED fields, the number of dead bees, foraging behavior, colony strength, brood development and food storage levels were, on average, SIMILAR between TREATED and UN-TREATED bee colonies.

 

By monitoring the weight of colonies throughout the four-year period, it was evident that there were also NO SUBSTANTIAL LOSSES of foraging bees exposed to TREATED crops in the field.

 

Detailed examination of brood development throughout the year demonstrated that colonies exposed to the TREATED crop were also ABLE TO SUCCESSFULLY OVER-WINTER, and had a SIMILAR HEALTH STATUS to the UN-TREATED bee colonies in the following spring.

Communities and businesses are being HARMED and DESTROYED and RAPED by PROHIBITIONS against pest control products used in the Urban Landscape, and by other ACTS OF ENVIRONMENTAL TERRORISM.

 

We are living in the 9|11 Era of Anti Pesticide and Environmental Terrorism where at least ONE SUBVERSIVE ACT OF TERROR is perpetrated EVERY SINGLE DAY by these terrorist.

 

We are living in the DARK AGE OF ANTI PESTICIDE TERRORISM where sound science is trumped by FAKE SCIENTISTS, JUNK SCIENCE and UNVERIFIABLE SECRET EVIDENCE through FABRICATION, INNUENDO, and INTERNET RUMOR  ―  scientific research PROVES that pest control products CAUSE NO HARM and can be USED SAFELY.

 

An informed public is better able to protect itself and its communities and businesses from so-called activists who are THE LEAST QUALIFIED TO PROVIDE ANY ADVICE about pest control products or the environment.

 

NORAHG is the National Organization Responding Against HUJE that seek to harm the Green space industry, and the well-being of our communities.

 

NORAHG morally represents the VAST SILENT MAJORITY of people associated with turf and ornamental plant maintenance who are OPPOSED to Anti Pesticide PROHIBITION and the CLOSURE or ABANDONMENT of green spaces under the RIDICULOUS PRETEXT of somehow « saving » the environment.

 

http://wp.me/P1jq40-2bo

 

NORAHG is a NATIONAL NON-PROFIT NON-PARTISAN organization that does not accept money from corporations or governments or trade associations, and represents NO VESTED INTERESTS WHATSOEVER.

 

NORAHG is dedicated to reporting PESTICIDE FREE FAILURES, as well as the work of RESPECTED and HIGHLY RATED EXPERTS who promote ENVIRONMENTAL REALISM and PESTICIDE TRUTHS.

 

http://wp.me/p1jq40-5DD

 

NORAHG responds on behalf of the VAST SILENT MAJORITY of the public that DOES NOT WANT PESTICIDE BANS, and SUPPORT those who work in the Professional Lawn Care Industry.

 

http://wp.me/P1jq40-2bo

 

NORAHG is opposed to Pesticide-Free jurisdictions that have DOOMED children to SUFFER INJURIES since Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION inevitably leads to public and residential green spaces that become DANGEROUS AND PEST-INFESTED GARBAGE DUMPS.

 

http://wp.me/P1jq40-44g

 

http://wp.me/P1jq40-4z3

 

NORAHG is concerned that, without pest control products, CHILDREN ARE AT HIGHER RISK OF SUFFERING INJURIES with the creation of HAZARDOUS SLIPPING AND TRIPPING CONDITIONS in sports turf.

 

http://wp.me/P1jq40-2ha

 

NORAHG pledges to deliver comprehensive reports that are worthy of peoples’ time and of peoples’ concern, reports that might ordinarily never have breached the parapet.

 

NORAHG was the brainchild of William H. Gathercole and his colleagues in 1991.  Mr. Gathercole is now retired, although his name continues to appear as founder.

 

Force Of Nature was launched by NORAHG for CONTINUOUS transmission on the Internet on January 1st, 2009   ―   however, the VERY FIRST Stand-Alone FORCE OF NATURE Report was issued on September 19th, 2008.

 

On March 15th, 2010, Uncle Adolph independently launched The Pesticide Truths, an easy-to-use Web-Site that collects relevant reports of information right-off-the-press.

Pesticide Truths and Force Of Nature, in some ways, are like Google for everything concerning the SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES of Anti-Pesticide and Enviro-Lunatic Terrorists.
