OK I refuse to read any more Beeculture articles - STUDY FINDS GLYPHOSATE AND ACETAMIPRID TO HAVE RELATIVELY LOW TOXICITY FOR HONEY BEES
What they fail to tell you is the government bodies for U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS) is run by people who have or have had worked at Monsanto, although Round up is a Fisons product, sold to Rhône-Poulenc which I believe Bayer owns:-
The "Big 6" pesticide and GMO corporations are BASF, Bayer, Dupont, Dow Chemical Company, Monsanto, and Syngenta. They are so called because they dominate the agricultural input market -- that is, they own the world’s seed, pesticide and biotechnology industries.
"The researchers found that 26 pesticides, including many (but not all) neonicotinoids, organophosphates, and pyrethroids killed nearly all of the bees that came into contact with the test pesticide sprays. However, seven pesticides, including glyphosate and acetamiprid, killed practically no bees in the tests. Glyphosate is the active ingredient in the herbicide commonly known as Roundup and acetamiprid is a neonicotinoid."
