The Wisdom Of Petelle
Concerns About Neonicotinoids Are NOT Warranted
According to Mr Pierre Petelle, President of CropLife Canada …
Worry about pollinator health and pesticides is NOT warranted, despite what the American Honey Producers Association may say.
Bee health is impacted by a number of factors, including nutrition, weather conditions, and beekeeping practices.
In fact, the MAIN CAUSES of colony losses during the 2015-16 winter were poor queens, Varroa Mites, weak colonies, and weather conditions, according to Canadian bee-keepers.
Canadian bee-keepers, like Canadian farmers, produce some of the best products in the world.
People should be confident consuming honey and other food produced by our hard-working farmers.
Before any pest control product can be sold in Canada, it must be approved by Health Canada.
Canada’s regulatory process is stringent, world-renowned, and ensures all pest control products that are used in Canada ARE SAFE FOR BOTH PEOPLE AND THE ENVIRONMENT.
Farmers choose to use neonicotinoid-treated seed because it is A SAFE AND EFFECTIVE WAY TO PROTECT THEIR CROPS WHILE ALSO MINIMIZING EXPOSURES TO BENEFICIAL INSECTS LIKE BEES.
Just as we need bees, farmers need tools like pest control products to provide us with safe, high-quality foods while ensuring our environment is protected for future generations.
Honeybee Colonies & Production Are Growing & Thriving In America & Canada
According to Mr Pierre Petelle, President of CropLife Canada, concerns about bee health and neonicotinoid insecticides is NOT warranted.
In fact, bees are NOT dying off in the wake of neonicotinoid insecticide use, they are actually GROWING AND THRIVING.
Why are a few bee-keepers losing their bees ?!?!
The most likely cause of losses are the bee-keepers themselves.
INCOMPETENT bee-keepers are killing their own hives.
Observers have concluded that many bee-keepers have no idea what they are doing, and are simply not skilled to raise bees.
Bee-keepers are killing their own bees over and over again.
Otherwise, bees are GROWING AND THRIVING.
There Is NO Bee-Pocalypse Because Of Neonicotinoid Insecticide Use
There are NO plummeting of bee numbers.
However, SOME bee-keepers are losing their bees over and over again simply because they are INCOMPETENT !
Bees are NOT being lost because of the agricultural use of insecticides.
Neonicotinoid-Treated Seeds DO NOT Harm Bees
In the agriculture industry, neonicotinoid-treated seeds are safe and effective way to protect their crops while also minimizing exposures to beneficial insects like bees.
Overall, so-called links and causes between bee colony collapse disorder and neonicotinoid insecticides are mere MYTHS !
When used properly, neonicotinoid insecticides will selectively and effectively control insect pests, but are completely safe for other non-target organisms ― they DO NOT harm bees, and have NO persistence beyond the season of use.
Although some neonicotinoid insecticides can be toxic to bees upon direct contact ( as are many so-called green alternatives ), for decades, they have been used in a way that minimizes any potential direct exposure to bees, such as coated-seed treatment.
This Best Management Practice ensures that the potential exposure to bees is at very low levels, far too low to cause harmful effects.
Consequently, neonicotinoid insecticides will cause NO harm to bees because coated-seeds are buried in the soil, rendering the insecticides inaccessible to bees and other non-target organisms.
Moreover, these insecticides systemically penetrate into the plant tissues where they remain inaccessible to bees.
Bees do NOT consume plant tissues, and, therefore, are NOT harmed by neonicotinoid insecticides.
There Is NO Neonicotinoid Crisis In Canada
Officially, the MAIN CAUSES of colony losses during the 2015-16 winter were poor queens, Varroa Mites, weak colonies, and weather conditions.
Bee-keepers know full well that these are the PRIMARY PROBLEMS associated with bee losses, and NOT insecticides.
In fact, some bee-keepers appear to be unable or unwilling to get their major pest problems under control, leading observers to conclude that bee-keepers who are losing their bees over and over again may NOT BE COMPETENT to handle their businesses, and may be WHOLY UNSUITED to be raising bees.
The MYTH of disappearing bees is a political disease that can only be eradicated with the truth.

WE LISTEN TO THE WHOLE TRUTH FROM MR PIERRE PETELLE FROM AN INDEPENDENT PERSPECTIVE !
We are the National Organization Responding Against HUJE that conspire to destroy the Green space and other industries ( NORAHG ). As a non-profit and independent organization, we are environmentalists who are dedicated to reporting about truth-challenged pesticide-hating fanatжcs ( HUJE ) who conspire to destroy businesses that are dependent on the use of safe and effective conventional pest control products. We also report on the work of several highly-rated leading experts who have recognized expertise, training, and background in matters concerning pest control products, and who promote environmental realism and pesticide truths.
Not surprisingly, enviro-fanatжcs have demonstrated that they are incapable of processing overwhelming scientific evidence. Should we trust these fanatжcs, who conveniently ignore scientific evidence, and attempt to impose their politicized-doctrines and twisted life-style choices against our society ?!?!
NORAHG was the brainchild of Mr William H Gathercole and his colleagues in 1991. Mr Gathercole is now retired, although his name continues to appear as founder.
