It will be very interesting to see how much impact there is on bee health.

I wonder what the 'fall back' pesticides will be. 

I guess the rest of us will be receiving their production of these three neonics now.

Also it will be interesting to see how much residual remains after the cessation of use.

I hope it works it would be the only way they could be banned in the US. If it works and we are resorting to ordering bees from Europe lol. Although if we fixed the bee problem then no one would get rich selling bees lol.

the plague ended after the  flaggelants beat themselves bloody  :evil:

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
