An interesting read Alan and thanks for bringing to our attention. Unfortunately with Donald Trump being in the hip pocket of the companies that make pesticides and herbicides, and Trump’s ability to ignore reality it will be a very long time before anything positive happen for bees.
A shame that Trump is owned by companies and not caring about the people who voted him into power.
Sulfoxaflor was approved in 2015 prior to the last election and would be used in ways where pollinators are not present. So they say but it’s for the use in sap sucking insects. So I wonder if it’s a means of saving some of our forests from an insect which is about to decimate a few varieties of trees. I can’t say I’m for the use of it though.
