  1. A Neonicotinoid Insecticide Ban Is NEXT !  And this time, it will be arbitrarily imposed against the Agriculture and Golf Industries.  Anti-pesticide lunatic government officials and bee-keepers are merely looking for so-called experts WHO AGREE WITH THEM as they seek arbitrary and ineffectual prohibition.  Any prohibition of pest control products is not necessary.  Between April and June 2012, Health Canada received a small number of reports of bee losses from across southern Ontario, involving a mere 40 bee-keepers, as well as 1 report from Quebec.  At present there are 2,900 bee-keepers in Ontario, therefore, the affected bee-keepers represent less than 1.5 per cent of all bee-keepers in Ontario.  The information evaluated to date suggests that insecticides used on treated corn seeds contributed to many of the bee losses.  Health Canada has issued a document entitled reducing risk from treated seeds which recommends Best Management Practices for corn growers.  This document is archived on The Pesticide Truths Web-Site.   http://wp.me/p1jq40-2ba   Additionally, in 2013, Health Canada will assess how well the Best Management Practices are working.  Overall, there is no evidence to suggest a link between insecticides called neonicotinoids and bee deaths, or bee colony collapse disorder.  Overall, neonicotinoid insecticides do not harm bees.  It is far more likely that bee-keepers themselves are harming bees, and not neonicotinoid insecticides.  When used properly, with Best Management Practices, neonicotinoid insecticides cause no harm, and do not hurt bees.   http://wp.me/P1jq40-2BA   http://wp.me/p1jq40-6H8   WILLIAM H.
