FACT-STATEMENTS 

 

 

Health Canada Scientists Perform Thorough Science-
Based Risk Assessments On All Pest Control Products,
& Their Potential Risks To Human Health & The
Environment, To Ensure That They Can Be Used Safely

 

 

 

TRANSCRIPT OF INFOGRAPHIC 

 

 

Introduction 

 

Before a pest control product can be sold or used in Canada, Health Canada scientists evaluate potential risks to human health and the environment. 

 

Health Canada takes into account that pest control products may pose higher risks to certain groups of people based on differences in factors such as   

 

   age

 

   behaviour

 

   biology

 

   gender

 

   occupation

 

   sex

 

Health Canada’s decisions about how pest control products can be used are based on protecting the most sensitive groups. 

 

 

 

Biological, Social & Cultural Considerations

 

 

Biological Differences In Toxicity

 

Toxins [ see commentary below ] can have different effects on males and females due to differences in   

 

   body fat  

 

   hormones 

 

   mass  

 

   organs 

 

All human health toxicity studies must include both male and female subjects. 

 

 

 

Commentary

 

TOXINS ALREADY EXIST IN NATURE    PESTICIDE EXPOSURE IS NOT A CONCERN !

 

According to the celebrated Dr Bruce Nathan Ames, natural toxins already exist in the environment.  Many of our foods contain pesticides created by plants for self-protection.  Since they are applied at very low doses, conventional pest control products are not of concern to humans.  Pesticides do not cause cancer.  See later segment for more details. 

 

According to Dr Gerald R Stephenson and his research team, after a pest control product dries on the turfgrass leaf, it is difficult, if not impossible, to dislodge residues off the leaf surface.  See later segment for more details.

   organ-specific functions ( i.e. breasts, testes, ovaries, uterus ) 

 

 

Social & Cultural Factors Resulting In Exposure

 

Examples of exposure routes and environments include   

 

   dietary 

 

   drinking water 

 

   exposure through skin 

 

   occupational 

 

   prenatal 

 

   residential / by-stander  [ see commentary below ] 

 

 

 

Commentary

 

EXPOSURE STUDIES SHOW HOME-OWNERS & BY-STANDERS ARE SAFE !

 

According to a definitive study on human exposure published by the celebrated Dr Keith R Solomon, pesticides like 2,4-D herbicide are safe.  His study showed no detectable residues in volunteers exposed to sprayed turf 24 hours following application.  See later segment for more details.

Health Canada scientists evaluate risks to Canadians, including susceptible groups, in environments where exposure might happen.

 

Consideration of more susceptible populations, including   

 

   children  [ see commentary below ] 

 

   infants 

 

   pregnant women 

 

   seniors

This is a requirement of the Pest Control Products Act. 

 

 

 

Commentary

 

CHILDREN ARE NOT AT RISK BECAUSE PESTICIDES WILL CAUSE NO HARM !

 

Children are not at risk from pesticides because these products will not cause harm.  The Risk Assessments of pest control products by Health Canada and US Environmental Protection Agency ( US EPA ) take into consideration sensitive groups, such as children, as well as infants and pregnant women.  Children are protected by Health Canada and US EPA. 

 

Children are not at risk from pesticides, but are at high risk with pesticide bans.  According to Dr James S Bus, there is no evidence that pest control products like 2,4-D cause cancer or any health problems in children.  See later segment for more details.  

 

Moreover, there is not a scintilla of credible evidence that children have been harmed by chemicals in the environment, or that they are more vulnerable to such harm.  However, enviro-fanatжcs exploit, recruit, coerce, and brain-wash children with false-alarms of imminent harm from chemicals like pest control products.  See later segment for more details.

Sex- & Gender-Based Considerations In The Scientific Risk Assessment Of Pesticides In Canada

 

2020 01 21

 

 

 

FACT-STATEMENTS 

 

 

There Are No Unacceptable Risks To Health &
The Environment Because Of Health Canada’s
Internationally-Accepted Scientific Standards

i.e. Good Laboratory Practice

 

 

 

TEXT OF FACT SHEET 

 

 

Introduction 

 

Pest control products must undergo a high level of scientific evaluation before they can be registered for use in Canada. 

 

Companies applying to register a pest control product must provide Health Canada with a large number of health and environmental studies, which must follow internationally-accepted scientific standards.  [ i.e. Good Laboratory Practice. See commentary below. ] 

 

When a pest control product is being evaluated for its potential risks to human health, the Pest Control Products Act requires Health Canada to take into account that chemicals may pose higher risks to groups of people based on differences in biology and behaviour, for example differences due to         age      gender      occupation      sex.

 

Health Canada’s risk-based approach to evaluating and regulating pest control products recognizes that many of these products work by having toxic properties. 

 

Determining whether a pest control product can be used safely requires scientific Risk Assessments of   

 

   whether the properties of the product also pose risks to human health and the environment 

 

   whether the product can be used in a way that does not pose those risks 

 

If the health and environmental risks of a pest control product cannot be safely managed, the product will not be registered for use in Canada.

 

 

 

Commentary

 

GOOD LABORATORY PRACTICE !

 

There are no unacceptable risks to health and the environment because of internationally-accepted scientific standards. 

 

The international standards allow national regulatory agencies, like Health Canada and US EPA, to be impartial and rigorous about the scientific Risk Assessments of pest control products. 

 

Only those pest control products that pose no unacceptable risk to health and environment become government-approved and federally-legal. 

 

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development ( OECD ) developed the internationally-accepted scientific standards named Test Guidelines and Principles of Good Laboratory Practices ( GLP ). 

 

GLP applies to all Risk Assessments that obtain data on properties and/or safety with respect to human health or the environment, for the purpose of supporting an application for registration. 

 

GLP-based Risk Assessments, which includes field studies as well as laboratory studies, has been adopted by national regulatory agencies, like US Environmental Protection Agency ( US EPA ), German Federal Institute For Risk Assessment, and Health Canada. 

 

All Risk Assessments used for the approval of pest control products must be completed by laboratories sanctioned by GLP, and using only GLP practices. 

 

Ultimately, the cost to manufacturers to get a pest control product assessed for safety and brought to market is about 250 million dollars. 

 

GLP-based Risk Assessments ensure that pest control products are scientifically-safe, pose no unacceptable risk to health and environment, and will not cause harm to people, animals, or the environment. 

 

Pest control products used in the urban landscape selectively and effectively control disease, insect, and weed pests, but are completely safe for other non-target organisms    they do not injure turfgrasses, and have no persistence beyond season of use. 

 

There is not one known incident report that demonstrates harm from the proper application of pest control products used in the urban landscape. 

 

 

 

Biological Considerations : Toxicity 

 

Toxins can have different effects on males and females due to         body fat      differences in physical processes      hormones & hormone changes throughout life      organs      size. 

 

The effects of toxins on pregnant women, the developing fetus and breast-fed children, must also be considered carefully.

 

All human health toxicity studies must include both male and female subjects. 

 

This approach allows for the consideration of sex across all possible ways of being exposed. 

 

Examples of sex-specific toxic effects include   

 

   certain types of cancer 

 

   fertility 

 

   fetal growth & development 

 

   organ-specific functions ( i.e. breasts, testes, ovaries, uterus ) 

 

 

Behavioral Considerations : Exposure 

 

Depending on where a pest control product is used, for example in industrial settings, on farms or in the home, one gender may be expected to have greater exposure to a product. 

 

Regardless of which gender is expected to be more exposed to the pest control product, Health Canada evaluates risks to males, females, and vulnerable populations in environments where exposure might happen.

 

Examples of exposure routes and environments include   

 

   breast milk 

 

   dietary 

 

   drinking water 

 

   exposure through skin 

 

   occupational 

 

   pre-natal 

 

   residential / by-stander 

 

Consideration of vulnerable groups, including         children      infants      pregnant women      seniors      women, is a requirement of the Pest Control Products Act. 

 

The level of health protection needed by the most vulnerable group in is applied to all individuals, regardless of sex and gender.

 

 

Looking Ahead

 

Canada’s approach to regulation of pest control products allows new science and data to be used in the assessment and management of risks before a product is registered, and after it enters the market-place.

 

Through our re-evaluation program, scientific review of each pest control product against modern standards is initiated every 15 years. 

 

Information collected through monitoring, incident reporting  [ see commentary below ]  , and compliance and enforcement, is continually improving our ability to identify and reduce risks related to product use. 

 

 

 

Commentary

 

INCIDENT REPORTS ENSURE PESTICIDE SAFETY !

 

Health Canada has stated that it is confident that the pest control products that it approves for use can be used safely when label directions are followed. 

 

Incident Reports are monitored by Health Canada to identify any potential risks to health or the environment from the use of pest control products and to take corrective actions when necessary. 

 

The more serious individual Incident Reports may lead to an official evaluation and action. 

 

For every conventional pest control product, manufacturers spend 250 million dollars in order to satisfy Health Canada’s scientific Risk Assessments. 

 

Two-hundred separate Risk Assessments are performed by the 350 professional experts at Health Canada to ensure that these products are scientifically-safe, and will cause NO harm. 

 

Consequently, there is not one known Incident Report of harm from the proper use of conventional pest control products used in the urban landscape. 

 

Pest control products are scientifically-safe, and will NOT cause harm to people, animals, or the environment.

TRANSCRIPT OF INFOGRAPHIC 

 

 

Pest control products help manage native and invasive pests that threaten Canada’s natural resources, crops and gardens.

 

Health Canada scientists evaluate hundreds of lab and field studies as part of a thorough science-based risk assessment.

 

They look at the potential effects pest control products can have on a wide variety of   

 

   animals 

 

   insect 

 

   plants 

 

Health Canada scientists also look at product exposure in the environment; including when, where, and how much, pest control products can come into contact with plants and wildlife.

 

They then determine the potential level of risk to the environment and the best way to manage these risks by restricting how, where, when, and if, a pest control product can be used.

 

Before using a pest control product, always read the label and check for the registration number to make sure the product is authorized for use by Health Canada.

Exposure & Effects Of Pesticides [ i.e. Neonicotinoid Insecticides ] Can Put Bees At Risk 

 

How ? 

 

Some pest control products are sprayed on plants. 

 

Some can also be taken up by the roots or leaves and move to other parts of the plant. 

 

How bees are exposed depends on how they interact with the plants and pest control products  [ i.e. Neonicotinoid Insecticides. See commentary below. ] . 

 

 

Exposure 

 

When bees land on the plant and feed on nectar and pollen. 

 

 

Effects 

 

Could be seen on adults and larvae, or the colony. 

 

 

Determining The Level Of Risk & Managing Risk 

 

Health Canada scientists determine the level of risk to bees by completing a thorough science-based risk assessment. 

 

Based on this information, they decide how to manage the risk to best protect bees. 

 

Only after Health Canada scientists have fully analyzed these studies, will they approve how, when, where, and if, a pest control product can be used in Canada.

TRANSCRIPT OF INFOGRAPHIC 

 

 

Introduction 

 

Bees move pollen from one flowering plant to another so plants can produce seed and fruit. 

 

Bees are the most common pollinator and are crucial to food production.

 

 

Risks 

 

Pest control products  [ i.e. Neonicotinoid Insecticides ]  used in soil, seeds, and sprays, can expose bees to pest control products when they land on the plant or when they feed on nectar and pollen. 

 

Bees are attracted to flowering plants and use the pollen and nectar for their food. 

 

 

Protect 

 

Health Canada has an extensive program in place to assess risks to bees from pest control products  [ i.e. Neonicotinoid Insecticides ] , including best management practices   

 

   remove flowering ground-cover before application 

 

   apply pest control products  [ i.e. Neonicotinoid Insecticides ]  only in the spring after blooms have fallen 

 

   since bees feed mostly during the day, apply pest control products  [ i.e. Neonicotinoid Insecticides ]  later in the evening   

 

 

 

CONDENSED TEXT OF TRANSCRIPT WITH COMMENTARY

 

 

HEALTH CANADA & US EPA PROTECT BEES !

 

Both Health Canada and US EPA have extensive programs in place to assess risks to bees from pest control products i.e. neonicotinoid insecticides.  They determine the level of risk to bees by completing a thorough science-based risk assessment. 

 

 

NEONICOTINOID INSECTICIDES ARE ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY !

 

In agriculture, consequently, neonicotinoid insecticides will cause NO harm to bees because coated-seeds are buried in the soil, so neonicotinoid insecticides become inaccessible to bees and other non-target organisms.  Moreover, when sprayed, these insecticides actually systemically penetrate into the plant tissues where they remain inaccessible to bees.  Bees DO NOT consume plant tissues, and, therefore, CANNOT be harmed by neonicotinoid insecticides.  [ See later segment. ] 

 

 

BEE-KEEPER INCOMPETENCE !

 

Some bee-keepers are losing their bees over and over again, but NOT because of neonicotinoid insecticides.  Observers have concluded that many of these bee-keepers have NO idea what they are doing, and are simply NOT skilled to raise bees.  [ See later segment. ] 

 

 

REASONS FOR BEE-KEEPER INCOMPETENCE !

 

Starvation, transportation, weak colonies, fungal infections, and mite infestations are the biggest causes of bee losses.  [ See later segment. ] 

 

 

TRUCK ACCIDENTS !

 

Bee-keepers are killing even more of their bees by truck accidents.  [ See later segment. ] 

 

 

UNJUSTIFIED COMPENSATION !

 

Incompetent bee-keepers falsely blame their bee losses on neonicotinoid insecticide, and believe that they are entitled to unjustifiable government compensation.  They will also say anything and do anything in order to obtain free government money.  [ See later segment. ]

Background Information

 

HEALTH CANADA PROTECTS
THE PUBLIC HEALTH

 

 

Incident Reports & Re-Entry Intervals Ensure Pesticide Safety

 

 

 

Read the whole truth from an independent perspective   

 

 

HEALTH CANADA HELPS PROTECT THE PUBLIC.  It does so by researching, assessing and collaborating in the management of the health risks and safety hazards associated with the many consumer products that Canadians use every day.  Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency ( PMRA ) regulates pest control products in Canada.  PMRA requires thorough scientific reviews and safety assessments to ensure that pest control products meet strict health and environmental standards and are shown to have value.  Pest control products are one of the most stringently regulated products in Canada.  It employs over 350 doctorate-level experts and leading scientific experts on pest control products.  Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency has the essential expertise and ultimate credibility on pest control products. 

INCIDENT REPORTS are monitored by Health Canada to identify any potential risks to health or the environment from the use of pest control products and to take corrective actions when necessary.  Consequently, the more serious individual Incident Reports may lead to an official evaluation and action.  Health Canada has stated that it is confident that the pest control products that it approves for use in Canada can be used safely when label directions are followed.  [ See links below. ] 

 

PESTICIDES WILL CAUSE NO HARM.  Consequently, there is not one known Incident Report of harm from the proper use of conventional pest control products used in the urban landscape.  Pest control products are scientifically-safe, and will not cause harm to people, animals, or the environment.  For every conventional pest control product, manufacturers spend 250 million dollars in order to satisfy Health Canada’s scientific Risk Assessments.  Two-hundred separate Risk Assessments are performed by the 350 professional experts at Health Canada to ensure that these products are scientifically-safe, and will cause no harm.  [ See links below. ] 

RE-ENTRY INTERVALS are necessary to ensure that any pest control product residues on the treated turfgrass surfaces do not pose an unacceptable risk to human health.  These intervals reflect the amount of time required for pest control product levels to dissipate to a level that is well below any point of concern.  They are determined by Health Canada in order to protect people against potential harm from pest control products applied to turfgrasses.  Typically, for all pest control products used for lawn care maintenance, the Health-Canada-approved labels state    keep people off treated area until foliage is DRY.  [ See links below. ] 

 

KNOWN CANCER-CAUSING SUBSTANCES do not include pesticides.  Pest control products are nowhere near a leading cause of cancer death, and there is no chance that they will make you die of cancer.  There is not one known cancer death from the proper use of these products when used in the urban landscape.  In comparison, there are thousands of known deaths per year from known cancer-causing substances such as         alcohol consumption      physical inactivity      excess body weight      cigarettes & second-hand smoke      solar ultra-violet ( UV ) radiation [ i.e. over-exposure to the sun ]      unhealthy diet.  The real big risk factors that are responsible for 12 per cent global cancer incidence include         cigarettes [ i.e. tobacco ]     obesity      various pathogens      not pesticides.  Moreover, the key exposures that contribute the most to the burden of occupational cancer in Canada do not include pesticides, according to Canadian Centre For Occupational Health & Safety ( CCOHS ) and Occupational Cancer Research Centre ( OCRC ).  [ See links below. ] 

 

PESTICIDES CAN BE USED SAFELY.  Expert-scientists at both Health Canada and US Environmental Protection Agency ( EPA ) need to be convinced that no harm is going to result from the proper use of a product before it is approved.  These expert-scientists are working to make sure that all pest control products made and sold can be used safely.  Hundreds of laboratory and field studies are evaluated to ensure that pest control products can be used safely, and that human health and the environment will be protected.  Pest control products are not harming people or their families.

CHILDREN ARE NOT AT RISK

 

 

Children Are Protected By Health Canada & US EPA

 

Incident Reports & Re-Entry Intervals Ensure Pesticide Safety

 

 

 

Read the whole truth from an independent perspective   

 

 

Children are not at risk from pesticides because these products will not cause harm. 

 

The assessment of pest control products by Health Canada and US Environmental Protection Agency ( US EPA ) take into consideration sensitive groups, such as children, as well as infants and pregnant women. 

 

Children’s physiology, behaviours, and habits while playing on treated turfgrass playing surfaces are considered when determining the safety of pest control products. 

 

Extra safety factors are applied by Health Canada and US EPA to protect children, as well as infants and pregnant women. 

 

Pest control products cause no harm to children. 

 

In fact, medication is the leading cause of poisoning in children. 

 

Pest control products will cause no harm, including chronic effects such as cancer. 

 

Children are protected by Health Canada and US EPA. 

 

According to Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency ( PMRA )   

 

The PMRA’s human health risk assessments consider the Canadian population in general and sub-populations such as women of child-bearing age, pregnant and nursing women, infants and children.

 

Infants and children have been a special consideration in health risk assessments for many years. 

 

Recent advances in scientific understanding reaffirm that children are not « little adults » and must be considered as a discrete sub-group. 

 

Two elements distinguish infants and children from the adult population   

 

1)  Biological considerations. 

 

The developing fetus, infants and children, are in a state of rapid growth with cells dividing and organ systems developing. 

 

Children have a higher ratio of skin surface area to body weight than adults and on a weight for weight basis, children eat more food, drink more water, and breathe more air, than adults. 

 

As a result of these biological differences, children may absorb, metabolize, and excrete chemicals differently than adults do, potentially resulting in differing levels of susceptibility to chemical hazards. 

 

2)  Unique exposures. 

 

In addition to exposure through minute residues that may remain on some food, such as fruits and vegetables, children may be exposed to pesticide residues in breast milk and formula, through skin contact with treated [ turfgrass ] surfaces while crawling and playing, and through incidental ingestion from behaviours such as hand-to-mouth transfer. 

 

[ See links below. ] 

 

Pest control products are safe for children, and do not represent a threat ! 

 

Children are not at risk from pesticides, but are at high risk with pesticide bans. 

 

According to Dr James S Bus, there is no evidence that pest control products like 2,4-D cause cancer or any health problems in children.

PESTICIDE EXPOSURE
IS NOT A CONCERN

 

 

Pesticides Do Not Cause Cancer

 

 

 

Read the whole truth from an independent perspective   

 

 

According to the celebrated Dr Bruce Nathan Ames   

 

Pest control products are scientifically-safe, and, at very low doses, pest control products are not of concern to humans.

 

Reducing our exposure to traces of dietary synthetic pest control products is expensive and will not plausibly reduce health issues such as cancer.

 

99.99 per cent of the pest control products we eat are naturally present in plants to ward off insects and other predators.

 

Many of our foods contain pesticides created by plants for self-protection.

 

We ingest at least ten thousand times more, by weight, of natural pesticides than of synthetic pesticide residues. 

 

These natural toxic chemicals vary enormously in chemical structure, appear to be present in all plants, and serve to protect plants against fungi, insects, and animal predators. 

 

Dr Bruce Nathan Ames is a Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, is one of the most celebrated scientists in the world today. 

 

He is a doctorate-level expert and world leading scientific expert in the field of cancer and aging, and one of the most-cited scientists in all fields. 

 

Dr Ames, for many years, was a senior staff member at the University of California, Berkeley, and was the developer of the Ames Test, a process widely used for evaluating the mutagenicity ( which may then indicate the carcinogenicity ) of a chemical. 

 

Besides numerous other awards, Dr Ames is the recipient of the US National Medal of Science.

HOME-OWNERS & BY-STANDERS
ARE SAFE

 

 

Pesticides Like 2,4-D Herbicide Are Safe

 

 

 

Read the whole truth from an independent perspective   

 

 

Dr Keith R Solomon, a University of Guelph celebrated toxicologist, published a definitive study on human exposure to 2,4-D herbicide. 

 

Solomon and Shelley Harris recruited 10 volunteers to sit, stand, and roll on a plot of grass 24 hours after a 2,4-D herbicide application. 

 

5 volunteers wore long sleeves and pants and 5 volunteers wore shorts and bare feet.

 

According to Dr Solomon   

 

No detectable residues were found in urine samples supplied by volunteers exposed to sprayed turf 24 hours following application.

 

[ See links below. ] 

 

In the same experiment Solomon had volunteers go on the grass one hour after 2,4-D was applied.

 

Solomon detected 2,4-D in the urine of volunteers who were barefoot and wore shorts, but the levels were well below the no-effect level from rat experiments.

 

According to Dr James S Bus, a scientist in toxicology & mechanistic biology   

 

The dose those individuals received [ in Solomon’s experiment ] was still 1,000 times lower than the five mg per kg of body weight.

 

[ See links below. ] 

 

According to Dr Bus, there is no evidence that pest control products like 2,4-D cause cancer or any health problems in children. 

 

[ See links below. ] 

 

Moreover, according to Dr Gerald R Stephenson and his research team, after a pest control product dries on the turfgrass leaf, it is difficult, if not impossible, to dislodge residues off the leaf surface. 

 

According to Dr Stephenson, with Mark K Sears and Dean G Thompson 

 

In field studies    less than 5 per cent of [ 2,4-D herbicide ] originally applied could be dislodged with a cheese-cloth wipe at day 0. 

 

Disappearance of dislodgeable residues was very rapid. 

 

Less than 0.01 per cent of the applied chemical was dislodgeable after 1 day in turf that received 18 mm of rainfall 1 hour after spraying. 

 

Residues in turfgrass that received no rainfall required 7 days to dissipate to the same level. 

 

In a study in which the clippings were not removed, the disappearance of dislodgeable residues, when the turf was mowed at 3, 7, and 11 days after application, was nearly as rapid as in unmowed turf.   

 

[ See links below. ] 

 

Dr Gerald R Stephenson was a doctorate-level leading scientific expert and professor at the department of environmental biology, University of Guelph.  

 

Dr Keith Ross Solomon is a doctorate-level leading scientific expert on the subject of regulatory affairs and pest control products at the University of Guelph as a professor in the department of environmental biology.  He is also director of the Centre for Toxicology.

 

Dr James S Bus is another doctorate-level leading scientific expert who has recognized expertise, training, and background in matters concerning pest control products.  He is senior managing scientist, toxicology & mechanistic biology, at Exponent Engineering and Scientific Consulting.

Read the whole truth from an independent perspective   

 

 

There is not a scintilla of credible evidence that children have been harmed by chemicals in the environment, or that they are more vulnerable to such harm.

However, enviro-fanat

children with false-alarms of imminent harm from chemicals like pest control products. 

 

Despicable enviro-fanatжcs exploit children as dramatic weapons of coercion and ultimate environmental-terrжr in order to coerce, intimidate, and terrжrize the public and government officials into accepting lunatжc doctrines such as anti-pesticide prohibition. 

 

Despicable enviro-fanatжcs attempt to recruit hapless and innocent children into environmental-terrжrism.  They advance their lunatжc doctrines by coercing children to admire environmental-terrжrist-organizations such as David Suzuki Foundation, Environmental Defence, Greenpeace, Rainforest Alliance, and Sierra Club.  They also coerce children to celebrate enviro-lunatжcs like Al Gore and David Suzuki by treating them as « eco-heroes ». 

 

Enviro-fanatжcs brain-wash children about the imaginary danger of modern chemicals, such as pest control products, that are, otherwise, safe and effective.

They
command brain-washed children to subversively persuade their parents to «
vote green », buy organic food, and give money to  environmental-terrжrist-organizations.

They also
brain-wash children with lunatжc-doctrines against the construction of new-homes, the plastics industry, and the agriculture industry.

Background Information

 

BEES ARE NOT AT RISK

 

 

Neonicotinoids Will Not Harm Bees

 

 

 

Read the whole truth from an independent perspective   

 

 

HEALTH CANADA & US EPA PROTECT BEES    Both Health Canada and US EPA have extensive programs in place to assess risks to bees from pest control products i.e. neonicotinoid insecticides.  They determine the level of risk to bees by completing a thorough science-based risk assessment. 

 

NEONICOTINOID INSECTICIDES ARE ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY    Overall, so-called links and causes between bee colony collapse disorder and neonicotinoid insecticides are mere myths.  When used properly, neonicotinoid insecticides that are used by the agriculture industry will selectively and effectively control insect pests, but they remain completely safe for other non-target organisms    they do not injure 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 alternative pesticides ), 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, so neonicotinoid insecticides become inaccessible to bees and other non-target organisms.  Moreover, when sprayed, these insecticides actually systemically penetrate into the plant tissues where they remain inaccessible to bees.  Bees do not consume plant tissues, and, therefore, cannot be harmed by neonicotinoid insecticides.  If bee-keepers were not so scientifically illiterate, they would know that scientific research shows that, as reported through EPA’s and Health Canada’s vast toxicology database, no harm will occur to bees. 

 

BEE-KEEPER INCOMPETENCE    Some bee-keepers are losing their bees over and over again, but not because of neonicotinoid insecticides.  Why is this madness happening ?!?!  Observers have concluded that many of these bee-keepers have no idea what they are doing, and are simply not skilled to raise bees.  Bee-keepers are the ones responsible for killing their own bees over and over again, but, rather than admit their incompetence, they prefer to wail endlessly about the imaginary risks of insecticides.  The alleged losses of bees are, in fact, the fault of these bee-keepers and their mis-management practices. 

 

REASONS FOR BEE-KEEPER INCOMPETENCE    The bee-keepers themselves are clearly responsible since they appear to be unable or unwilling or not skilled enough to mitigate the real issues that harm bees, such as starvation, transportation, weak colonies, fungal infections, and mite infestations.  Starvation is biggest single cause of bee losses.  For example, the factor cited by most Ontario producers for winter loss has been starvation, followed by weak colonies in the fall, and poor queens.  There is a bee crisis only because bee-keepers are harming their own bees, and not because of neonicotinoid insecticides.  [ See link below. ] 

 

TRUCK ACCIDENTS    Additionally, bee-keepers are killing even more of their bees by truck accidents.  Bee-keepers are not just starving their bees to death, they are also killing them through inept transportation.  [ See link below. ] 

 

UNJUSTIFIED COMPENSATION    Bee-keepers prefer to remain unproficient at bee-keeping, and expect the government to shower them with vast sums of unjustifiable compensation.  Observers believe bee-keepers lie about the alleged losses of their bees, just as they lie about their competency on raising their bees.  Incompetent bee-keepers falsely blame their bee losses on neonicotinoid insecticide, and believe that they are entitled to unjustifiable government compensation.  They will also say anything and do anything in order to obtain free government money.  They will say anything and do anything in order to coerce and intimidate government officials into prohibiting insecticides.  The imposition of prohibition will guarantee their entitlement to unjustifiable government compensation.  Unfortunately, any prohibition or any restriction will NEVER save bees.  The alleged losses of bees are, in fact, the fault of these bee-keepers and their insane management practices.  [ See links below. ]
