New EPA label requirements for neonicotinoid insecticides

RSS

Farmers and consultants who have beekeepers and their hives nearby will face a new EPA label requirement when the 2014 crop season begins. The new label says growers cannot spray neonicotinoid insecticides during the flowering period for their crops.

The exception occurs when pest populations exceed recognized threshold levels, as Dr. Jeff Gore explains in this interview.

Gore and other university entomologists discussed a number of issues during MANA’s sixth annual Consultants Conference in Memphis, Tenn., on Feb. 26.
