Prince Edward County

Arbitrarily Prohibits Against

Neonicotinoid Insecticides

On Its Municipal Lands


May 29th, 2014


Selected And Adapted Excerpts


On May 27th, 2014, officials in Prince Edward County passed a motion PROHIBITING against Neonicotinoid Insecticides used on its MUNICIPAL LANDS.

This LUNATIC-PROHIBITION became effective immediately, and will INEVITABLY LEAD TO TOTAL PROHIBITION against the Agriculture Industry.

TOTAL AGRICULTURE PROHIBITION will inflict CARNAGE AND DESTRUCTION against the Agriculture Industry that DESPERATELY RELIES UPON Neonicotinoid Insecticides.

TOTAL PROHIBITION will DESTROY the Agriculture Industry, just like it DESTROYED the Professional Lawn Care Industry.

Prince Edward County, located in Southern Ontario, has GAINED NOTORIETY by becoming the FIRST LUNATIC-MUNICIPALITY TO PROHIBIT against Neonicotinoid Insecticides.

Prince Edward County is governed by Government Officials who operate as the POLITICAL SHIELD for Anti-Pesticide & Environmental-Terrorist Organizations like Sierra Club.

Despite the official name, Prince Edward is not a county by the standard Ontario definition  —  it is a single-tier municipal government with city status that handles all municipal services.

NO ONE within the Government of Prince Edward County has ANY recognized training, background, or experience in pest control products.

Its Government Officials are IMPOSING PROHIBITION

Its Government Officials are IMPOSING PROHIBITION UNDER THE FALSE PRETEXT that Neonicotinoid Insecticides are somehow killing bees.

Health Canada, and NOT Prince Edward County, has THE ESSENTIAL EXPERTISE on the subject of pest control products.

Moreover, the scientific evidence backing up Prince Edward County’s PROHIBITION just isn’t there.

The ONLY people who want PROHIBITION are a SMALL GROUP of activists with VESTED INTERESTS IN CONCOCTING IMAGINARY DANGER against pest control products.

Anti-Pesticide Officials at Prince Edward County are ABSOLUTELY WRONG about the need for PROHIBITION against Neonicotinoid Insecticides !   Officials allowed themselves to be MIS-INFORMED AND DECEIVED by Anti-Pesticide Lobbyists.  With this RECKLESS AND ARBITRARY PROHIBITION against safe and effective Neonicotinoid Insecticides, it is INEVITABLE that PROHIBITION will be EXTENDED against the entire Agriculture Industry.  With TOTAL PROHIBITION, agricultural fields in Prince Edward County will become #@!!% INSECT-INFESTED GARBAGE CROPS, and the Agriculture Industry WILL BE DESTROYED.  The Agriculture Industry CANNOT AFFORD THIS #@!!% BAN NONSENSE.  Consequently, Officials at Prince Edward County will face THE SPOTLIGHT OF SCRUTINY AND THE TERROR OF THE COURTS.  Their prohibition CANNOT BE DEFENDED IN COURT.  There is NO LEGITIMATE SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE to suggest a link between Neonicotinoid Insecticides and bee losses.  With Best Management Practices, Neonicotinoid Insecticides DO NOT HARM BEES.  If Officials at Prince Edward County were not so SCIENTIFICALLY ILLITERATE, they would know that scientific research shows that, as reported through Health Canada’s vast toxicology database, LEGITIMATE SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE demonstrates that NO HARM will occur to bees with neonicotinoid insecticides.  However, it is more likely that Bee-Keepers themselves are HARMING THEIR OWN BEES.  It is clear that bee losses are the FAULT of a very small number of INCOMPETENT Bee-Keepers and their mis-management practices.  In other words, Bee-Keepers are responsible, and NOT Neonicotinoid Insecticides.  Officials at Prince Edward County are not willing to explain why only a very LIMITED NUMBER of Bee-Keepers were affected, less than 1 per cent of all Bee-Keepers.  In 2012, a mere 43 Bee-Keepers alleged losses.  In 2013, only 82 Bee-Keepers alleged losses.  There are 7,000 Bee-Keepers keeping 600,000 colonies of honeybees across Canada.  Essentially, a MERE 1.0 PER CENT OF ALL BEE-KEEPERS ARE REPORTING LOSSES.  These represent the incompetent Bee-Keepers of Canada.  Over 99 per cent of all Bee-Keepers are reporting NO LOSSES.  Why don’t officials at Prince Edward County question why only a very limited number of Bee-Keepers are affected ?!?!  1 per cent of Bee-Keepers appear to have NO IDEA WHAT THEY ARE DOING, leading some observers to conclude that these Bee-Keepers may NOT BE COMPETENT TO RAISE BEES.  Moreover, Bee-Keeper allegations regarding insecticides are SO RIDICULOUS that observers are beginning to speculate that Bee-Keepers DELIBERATELY KILLED THEIR OWN BEES in order to lay false blame against Neonicotinoid Insecticides.  Why don’t officials at Prince Edward County investigate the losses of bees at the hands of Bee-Keepers ?!?!  Why don’t officials at Prince Edward County investigate the incompetence of Bee-Keepers ?!?!  Bee-Keepers conceal the fact that their losses are actually the fault of their MIS-MANAGEMENT PRACTICES, or worse, their own DELIBERATE ACTIONS.  We have to consider all the factors that can harm the bees, and there is NO LEGITIMATE SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE to suggest that Neonicotinoid Insecticides somehow harm bees.  Officials at Prince Edward County will INEVITABLY EXTEND PROHIBITION against the Agriculture Industry.  Consequently, they will LOSE THEIR AGRICULTURE INDUSTRY.  PROHIBITION WILL INFLICT BANKRUPTCY, UNEMPLOYMENT, DESPAIR, and DESTITUTION against the Agriculture Industry.  We must STOP PROHIBITION in Prince Edward County, whatever the cost may be.  For more information concerning Bee-Keepers KILLING THEIR OWN BEES, go to the following link  …   For more information regarding BEES, go to  …   NORAHG is the National Organization Responding Against HUJE that seek to harm the Green space industry.  WILLIAM H.

Farmers & industry are very concerned about neonics being related to bee deaths in Canada.  There have been many measures that are mandatory for farmers to help reduce and in most cases eliminate neonic dust that is ONLY created from air seeders.  Other planters such as regular corn planter and seed drill product no neonic dust.  1) all farmers who choose to use a seed lubricant MUST use a fluency agent that will not rub the seed treatment off.  2) it has been highly recommended that any farmer who owns a air seeder purchase a defector kit for the exhaust from the planter is defected toward the ground, thus almost, if not completely eliminating any dust drifting to neighboring plants.  As for Soybeans and corn, bees will only try to feed on them if the are or starving. Corn and soybeans are not very palatable to bees in the first place.  There are also many other factors in this increase in bee deaths including the devastating varroa mite, which feed on the bees themselves.
