Chicago Protest Against Neonicotinoid Insecticides

 

 

A recent protest by organic activists outside a Chicago Home Depot highlighted something of the current debate over pesticides and bees.

 

It also reminded me that no one wants to go on record as being « against the bees ».

 

Check out the video below.

Neonicotinoid Insecticides

 

 

The folks in the bee costumes in the above video are protesting the retail sale of « bee-killing » insecticides called Neonicotinoids [ a.k.a. Neonicotinoid Insecticides ].

 

They represent groups DEMANDING that Neonicotinoid Insecticides NOT BE SOLD, and that stores begin selling only NURSERY PLANTS THAT HAVE NOT BEEN TREATED with these insecticides.

 

There has been some interesting discussion on this subject in a chat group that I belong to.

 

I thought I would share some of the more interesting comments and new studies on the subject.

Australian Honey Bees Are Not In Decline

 

 

Bee experts are mostly in agreement that Bee Colony Collapse Disorder ( BCCD ) in honeybees is NOT AS SIMPLE AS « bad » pesticides.

 

In fact pesticides may have little to do with bee declines in some areas.

 

Australia may be instructive in this regard.

 

Australia uses Neonicotinoid Insecticides like the rest of the world, but AUSTRALIAN HONEY BEES ARE NOT IN DECLINE.

 

An AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT REPORT confirms as much, and concludes that take as a whole  …

 

[ Neonicotinoid use has led to an ] OVERALL REDUCTION IN THE RISKS TO THE AGRICULTURAL ENVIRONMENT from the application of insecticides.

Tobacco Ringspot Virus

 

 

A recent collaborative paper in the journal mBio, by Chinese and U.S. scientists, found a virus that has been known for many years, Tobacco Ringspot Virus ( TRSV ), that is INFECTING HONEYBEES.

 

Tobacco Ringspot Virus is the first known plant virus that has mutated and adapted into an animal-infesting virus.

 

It appears to be transmitted to bees via pollen, and also by Varroa Mites.

 

The presence of Tobacco Ringspot Virus in bee colonies appears to be ASSOCIATED WITH GRADUAL DECLINES IN BEE COLONY VITALITY.

Varroa Mites Are A Major Cause Of Bee Colony Collapse Disorder

 

 

In fact, Varroa Mites in combination with viruses are currently under close scrutiny as a major explanation [ i.e. cause ] for Bee Colony Collapse Disorder ( CCD ).

 

According to Dr. Richard Cowles, with the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station  ―

 

When combined with work on Israeli Acute Paralysis Virus and a demonstration that irradiation of hive equipment from CCD could prevent nukes from succumbing to CCD, the STRONGEST EVIDENCE for the cause of CCD is the Varroa / viral combination.

 

An interesting side observation is that AUSTRALIA does not yet have Varroa Mites, which lends strength to the argument for a mite-vectored virus explanation for the disease.

Root Applications With Neonicotinoid Insecticides CAUSE NO HARM

 

 

Most studies that have found Neonicotinoid Insecticides in pollen have been on herbaceous plants.

 

In one study on red maple trees, a dissertation by Dr. Josephine Johnson at the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND, no imidacloprid [ a Neonicotinoid Insecticide ] was found in tree nectar, and only extremely low levels in pollen ( bees feeding on these trees had no evidence of insecticides, nor in hive collected nectar ).

 

So, if you do root applications with Neonicotinoid Insecticides on trees per label instructions, there is NO EVIDENCE right now that such applications pose any risk to pollinators.

Factors That Contribute To Bee Colony Collapse Disorder

 

 

Two WASHINGTON STATE UNIVERSITY Extension publications are available on Bee Colony Collapse Disorder and Neonicotinoid Insecticides.

 

The first publication by Lawrence and Sheppard, provides an OVERVIEW of the problem with an explanation of the various FACTORS thought to contribute to Bee Colony Collapse Disorder.

 

The second publication, How To Reduce Bee Poisoning From Pesticides, is a thorough overview of practical ways to reduce the risk of bee poisoning due to pesticides, and includes a table of most commonly used pesticides with their potential risks to bees.

 

None of this is to say that there are no legitimate concerns about the toxicity of Neonicotinoid Insecticides to pollinators.

 

These products are certainly toxic to bees, and at levels lower than previously recognized.

 

But research in this area is ongoing, and our understanding of the possible FACTORS that might be hurting bee populations is much better than it was a few years ago.

 

Despite what you might hear, both Environmental Protection Agency and the pesticide industry is taking pollinator concerns seriously and is acting to make sure that you have safe tools to control pests effectively.

 

After all, who wants to be « against the bees » ?

Background Information From An Independent Perspective

 

NO Evidence That Insecticides Harm Bees

 

 

There is NO EVIDENCE TO SUGGEST A LINK between Neonicotinoid Insecticides and Bee Colony Collapse Disorder.

 

Neonicotinoid Insecticides, like Imidacloprid, are widely used for the control of insect pests in lawns, gardens, ornamental plants, and agriculture. 

 

In fact, there is OVERWHELMING SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE demonstrating that Neonicotinoid Insecticides are NOT A SIGNIFICANT FACTOR in bee losses.

 

Moreover, researchers have NOT been able to identify a single cause of Bee Colony Collapse Disorder.

 

Overall, Neonicotinoid Insecticides DO NOT HARM BEES. 

 

Unfortunately, it is Bee-Keepers who are HARMING BEES with their MIS-MANAGEMENT PRACTICES.

 

Since 2006, Anti-Pesticide Bee-Keepers have FALSELY ALLEGED that there are so-called links and causes between the Neonicotinoid Insecticides like Imidacloprid and Bee Colony Collapse Disorder.

Background Information From An Independent Perspective

 

Varroa Mites Are The Prime Suspects In Bee Deaths

 

 

International researchers widely agree that bee health is impacted by A COMBINATION OF FACTORS, THE PRIMARY ONE BEING VARROA MITES.

 

According to the U.S. Agriculture Department and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, THE SINGLE MOST DETRIMENTAL PESTS OF HONEYBEES ARE VARROA MITES.

 

According to Ernesto Guzman, a Bee Researcher at the University of Guelph, VARROA MITES continue to be THE PRIME SUSPECT IN BEE DEATHS.

 

According to Guzman, there is evidence that VARROA MITES ARE THE PRIMARY PROBLEM ASSOCIATED WITH BEE MORTALITY in Southern Ontario, although Neonicotinoid Insecticides have been associated with some ISOLATED CASES of colony mortality.

Communities and businesses are being HARMED and DESTROYED and RAPED by LUNATICS who ARBITRARILY AND RECKLESSLY IMPOSE 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 LUNATICS.

 

A LUNATIC is a person whose actions and manner are marked by extreme recklessness.

 

The RECKLESS ACTS OF SUBVERSION by these LUNATICS has led to the ARBITRARY IMPOSITION of Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION in several jurisdictions throughout North America.

 

The result was CATASTROPHIC CARNAGE !

 

Because of Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION, provinces like Ontario now have a TRAIL OF ECONOMIC DESTRUCTION WITH HUNDREDS OF SMALL BUSINESSES DESTROYED and THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE OUT OF WORK, a MORE DANGEROUS OUTDOOR ENVIRONMENT, and a BLACK MARKET IN PESTICIDES.

 

Only TRUE LUNATICS would wish to create a TRAIL OF ECONOMIC DESTRUCTION WITH HUNDREDS OF SMALL BUSINESSES DESTROYED and THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE OUT OF WORK.

 

Because of these LUNATICS, 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 ( a.k.a. LUNATICS ) 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 LUNATICS and their Anti Pesticide PROHIBITIONS, resulting in the CLOSURE or ABANDONMENT of green spaces under the RIDICULOUS PRETEXT CONCOCTED BY LUNATICS 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, the Golf Industry, and the Agriculture Industry.

 

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

 

NORAHG is opposed to PESTICIDE FREE jurisdictions where LUNATICS 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

 

http://wp.me/p1jq40-7C4

 

NORAHG is concerned that, because of PESTICIDE FREE MAINTENANCE of parks and sports fields, CHILDREN ARE AT HIGHER RISK OF SUFFERING INJURIES with the creation of HAZARDOUS SLIPPING AND TRIPPING CONDITIONS.

 

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.

 

http://pesticidetruths.com/

 

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.
