The dumb kid in the back of the room has a question? Since the seed and the coating is put in the ground and covered up and where it rots and the corn grows up, has someone started a new line of digger honey bees. Do they have little shovels and miner lamps? Has honey got clay in it?
Maybe the dumb kid ought to read the article before asking questions.
"According to the new study, neonicotinoid insecticides "are among the most widely used in the world, popular because they kill insects by paralyzing nerves but have lower toxicity for other animals."
Beekeepers immediately observed an increase in die-offs right around the time of corn planting using this particular kind of insecticide.
Pneumatic drilling machines suck the seeds in and spray them with the insecticide to create a coating before they are planted in the ground. Researchers suspected the mass die-offs could have been caused by the particles of insecticide that were released into the air by the machines when the chemicals are sprayed."
