Ortho Phasing Out Neonicotinoids

I saw this story today in my browser. Brady


Thanks for the news Brady. One thing I might add the news story left out is that there is quite a variation in bee lethality of various neonics.

Most of the homeowner formulations of neonics contain imidicloprid, which is very lethal to bees at incredibly small doses.


Very interesting/ thanks for sharing.

State of Maryland just outlawed neo-nics for home use after hearing tons of testimony about bees. My only use was to kill lilac borers with one April application but will gladly help the bees instead.

High-profile cases involving commercial landscape trees and commercial pest control gave this stuff a bad name.
