  • EU steps up for bees & U.S. backtracks | Honey Bee Haven
    The agency has a responsibility to protect bees and the livelihood of beekeepers Unless the agency takes steps to protect pollinators they are putting agricultural economies and the food system at risk The case for greater bee protections has been building in Europe Several recent reports including one from the European Food Safety Agency EFSA indicate that three neonicotinoid insecticides imidacloprid clothianidin and thiamethoxam produced by Switzerland s Syngenta and Germany s Bayer pose an unacceptable hazard to honey bees Additionally EFSA found that the industry sponsored science upon which regulatory agencies claim of safety have relied are fatally flawed And yet EPA is still seemingly reluctant put protections in place for bees Attempting to spur action Pesticide Action Network Center for Food Safety and Beyond Pesticides along with over 25 beekeepers filed an emergency legal petition with EPA last year seeking an immediate halt to the use of clothianidin until adequate studies have been completed and safeguards put in place The agency denied the petition and is moving forward with a much slower process continuing with its current review of the neonic set to conclude in 2018 Bad news from EPA As if bees and beekeepers didn t face enough challenges EPA is now poised to add another systemic pesticide into the mix Dow s sulfoxaflor is a cousin of neonicotinoids and impacts the same bee brain synapses nicotinic acetylcholine receptors It s yet another systemic pesticide that would be used on a wide variety of crops like canola cotton citrus and vegetables Beekeepers are warning that this may be the worst year yet for bee losses This is saying something since they ve reported losses of about 30 since 2006 Bad news for beekeepers and bad news for crops like almonds that are reliant on bees for pollination

  • Neonics hurt bees. Who knew?! | Honey Bee Haven
    leaked memo showing that EPA has allowed clothianidin a neonicotinoid to remain on the market despite the absence of any solid science demonstrating the chemical s safety for bees Last spring PAN conducted our own evaluation of the state of the science on pesticides and bees and reached many of the same conclusions outlined in EFSA s comprehensive review of the science see their full report The science is not the surprise here What s significant is that a governmental body has found the fortitude to call a spade a spade Now let s see if European authorities follow through No new data here In the UK at least things are looking moderately hopeful The Chair of the Environmental Audit Committee Joan Walley MP responded to the report s findings The European Food Safety Authority has now reviewed the available evidence and concluded that neonicotinoids should only be used on crops that are not attractive to honey bees I welcome that move but given that there is no new data here it is extremely worrying that these pesticides were authorised for use in the European Union in the first place This raises important questions about the whole European pesticides assessment
