Europe May Face Extinction Of Hundreds Of Animals, Species

With each species that disappears, the environment suffers a change in the balance, sending shock waves throughout the world. Unfortunately, this loss points to habitat degradation that also has harmful effects on humans. The continuing loss of birds can allow insects to breed at alarming rates, harming crops. A reduced number of bees inhibits plant pollination. Diminishing forests mean water is not cleaned naturally and the soil is loosened, too, making the floods and mud slides that happened in Pakistan this year more likely.

All of that, environmentalist say, means governments should spend money preserving species from extinction. Protecting them means protecting the system all beings, including people, rely on to live. . — Global Animal European lynx faces extinction.

They found the proof they needed to support their cause. NEWS: Article EPA Doc: .pdf Or wait a moment, lets look at what Clothianidin is and what it is used for. A Seed Treatment Product (Poncho) (Insecticide) Maize(Corn) is the one the BeeKeepers are the most worried about. Bees love Corn Pollen from Mature Plants. They say “Poncho” is only effective for the first 12 weeks of germination and leaf shoot development.

They also say the application rates of Clothianidin is half of that of say Imidacloprid. Finally, these products that are seed treated are used for Non Human or Animal purposes, like for making more CORN per bushel for Ethanol Fuels. REMEMBER: Clothiandin is not sprayed onto a mature plant when it has available resources (pollen) for the bees to interact with. Now you know a few reasons why the EPA has not banned Clothianidin Always: READ THE LABEL. Pesticide issues in the works: Bee Die-Off in Germany Unrelated to CCD.

Italy Bans Pesticides Linked to Bee Devastation

The Ministero del Lavoro della Salute e delle Politiche Sociali issued an immediate suspension of the seed treatment products clothianidin, imidacloprid, fipronil and thiamethoxam used in rapeseed oil, sunflowers and sweetcorn. The Italian government will start a monitoring program to further investigate the reasons of recent bee deaths. Italy followed Germany and Slovenia which banned sales of clothianidin and imidacloprid in May. In France imidacloprid has been banned on sunflowers already since 1999. In 2003 the substance was also banned as a sweetcorn treatment. The two substances are produced by the German company Bayer CropScience and generated *800 million in 2007. Neonicotinoid pesticides are systemic chemicals that work their way through the plant and attack the nervous system of any insect it comes into contact with.
