It is spring, soon we will be planting flowers outside. When we have heat and flowers, we get bees,
We also get those crazy folks dressed in bee suits, who would like to see ALL pesticides (not just neonics) gone for good.
That’s their right.. Just as we growers, and the University Researchers believe Beer should be included as one of basic food groups (the others ‘beeing’ (Bacon, Cheese, Wine and Coffee).
I believe, as most of you do, that product bans, if needed, should come from science and data, not from emotion or personal opinion.
Which is why AmericanHort and many Canadian Universities are hard at work, making sure, that science wins,
---- in the neonics/pollinators debate!
