In a plastic, lasercut box blacked out with paint and lit with red light, worker bumblebees (Bombus impatiens) go about their daily activities: interacting with fellow adults, extracting food from honey pots, feeding larvae, and occasionally venturing out to forage for nectar.

PHYSORG 09/01/17 Neonicotinoid pesticide affects foraging and social interaction in bumblebees

While this nest is far from normal, the bees that live here have adapted to their new space remarkably well. Still, all is not well within the nest, and not because of its strange form. Some bees have abandoned their daily patterns and are spending more time alone, on the periphery. Others are spending less time caring for the utterly dependent larvae that will become the next generation of bumblebees. Within the nest, the chaotic center of bumblebee life, social behavior and interactions are crucial for bee population health and the production of young. Outside the nest, this neonicotinoid also has significant effects on pollination and foraging behavior. More information: Callin M.

RURAL NEWS 20/05/13 Neonic future unclear in NZ

Following last week’s EU announcement (see sidebar) Rural News asked the Environmental Protection Authority, which regulates use of such products here, if it was reviewing, or considering a review of neonicotinoid approvals. The EPA did not directly answer that and other questions within Rural News’ deadline, but in a written response (nobody was available for interview) defended the approvals process.

If evidence suggests a substance poses any risk to invertebrates such as bees, this automatically triggers controls to manage those risks, including preventing the substance being used on flowering plants, or in areas where bees may forage, it said. It also said New Zealand’s regulations are already as tight as the new European controls on neonicotinoid use.

It has been suggested that several neonicotinoids cause neurodevelopmental toxicity in mammals. The aim was to establish the relationship between oral intake and urinary excretion of neonicotinoids by humans to facilitate biological monitoring, and to estimate dietary neonicotinoid intakes by Japanese adults.

PLOS 17/12/14 Unexpected Effects of Low Doses of a Neonicotinoid Insecticide on Behavioral Responses to Sex Pheromone in a Pest Insect

Although integrated pest management strategies are increasingly developed, most insect pest treatments rely on widespread use of neurotoxic chemicals, including neonicotinoid insecticides. Residual accumulation of low concentrations of these insecticides in the environment is known to be harmful to beneficial insects such as honey bees. This environmental stress probably acts as an “info-disruptor” by modifying the chemical communication system, and therefore decreases chances of reproduction in target insects that largely rely on olfactory communication. However, low doses of pollutants could on the contrary induce adaptive processes in the olfactory pathway, thus enhancing reproduction.

UMassAmherst 05/06/14 Grub Control in Lawns: Neonicotinoids and Bees

While most enjoy honey and are familiar with beekeeping as a hobby, it may be less well known that healthy honeybees along with various native bee species are an essential part of agricultural production. Bees are responsible for the pollination of a wide range of agricultural crops each growing season; crops valued in the billions of dollars that are critical to the stability of our food system. Public and private interests are currently scrambling to identify the mechanics of this pressing issue, commonly referred to as honeybee decline or colony collapse disorder (CCD). It is important to note that commercial honeybee colonies are affected along with wild, native pollinator populations. Concerning the role of pesticides, neonicotionoid insecticides such as imidacloprid, clothianidin and thiamethoxam have been implicated as a potential contributing factor to honeybee decline.

PLOS 01/08/14 Impact of Chronic Neonicotinoid Exposure on Honeybee Colony Performance and Queen Supersedure

During the last decade elevated colony losses have been documented in Europe and North America. Despite growing consensus on the involvement of multiple causal factors, the underlying interactions impacting on honeybee health and colony failure are not fully resolved. Parasites and pathogens are among the main candidates, but sublethal exposure to widespread agricultural pesticides may also affect bees.

On Monday 29th April 2013, the European Commission’s Appeal Committee met to discuss the proposals to restrict authorisations of neonicotinoid insecticide products containing clothianidin, imidacloprid and thiamethoxam.

The proposals had previously resulted in ‘no opinion’ among Member States when they were put to a vote in the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health (Pesticides Legislation Section) on 15th March. The Appeal Committee did not reach an ‘opinion’ (which would have required a qualified majority in favour or against), which means that the European Commission will now proceed to adopt the original proposals. HORTI DAILY 10/02/14 Syngenta seeks new uses for neonicotinoid pesticide.

FOOD OF FUTURE 05/06/14 Neonicotinoids: Role Of Pesticides In Bee Decline. An international panel of scientists is calling for an evidence-driven debate over whether a widely used type of insecticide is to blame for declines in bees and other insect pollinators. The Oxford Martin School published on May 21st the second in its "restatement" series. Restatements take an area of current policy concern and controversy and attempt to set out the science evidence base in as policy neutral way as possible. They also provide a commentary on the nature of the evidence base. The restatement, from a group of nine scientists led by Professor Charles Godfray and Professor Angela McLean from the Oxford Martin School, attempts to clarify the scientific evidence available on neonicotinoids to enable different stakeholders to develop coherent policy and practice recommendations.

The study is published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society. FARMERS GUARDIAN 25/09/14 Defra approves two neonicotinoid sprays for autumn use. DEFRA has approved two neonicotinoid pesticides for autumn use in a move that may bring some relief to farmers struggling to establish oilseed rape crops this autumn. The two pesticides - Bayer’s Biscaya and InSyst, made by Certis Europe - had been awaiting approval since July. The products are both neonicotinoid crop sprays not affected by the current EU suspension of certain neonicotinoid seed treatments in flowering plants and were licensed only for spring use Following Defra’s approval, Biscaya can now be used all-year-round .

InSyst (acetamiprid) has been granted 120-day emergency approval for the control of cabbage stem flea beetle in oilseed rape. The approval will expire on January 23. Confirming the two products have now been approved for use this autumn, a Defra spokesman said: “It is important that farmers have access to safe pesticides that do not damage the environment. “Biscaya and InSyst have been in use for some time and are now being approved for use throughout the year”.

Environmental Protection Agency allowed neonicotinoids—nerve toxins used on most of the country’s crops—on the market without adequate tests to determine their impact on bees. “Bees really are the underpinning of an entire agricultural system,” said Paul Towers, organizing and media director for the Pesticide Action Network. “When you pull out that underpinning, or that pin, you begin to see the collapse of an entire agricultural system.” The episode exposes the conundrum created by the government’s inaction; billions in neonicotinoid sales for the chemical industry; and the death of bees, which strains the U.S. economy.
