Germany and France ban pesticides linked to bee deaths; Geneticist urges U.S. ban

June 23rd, 2008

In Germany, Cummins says, the government decided to take action when studies consistently showed highly toxic levels of clothianidin in corn pollen. “That was the reason they banned it. They couldn’t not ban it.”

In the U.S., pesticide levels have not yet reached a “toxic” level, the geneticist says, but he thinks it’s foolish to wait until the evidence is staring us in the face or fields lay fallow.

“I think the message [bees are] giving us is very clear. They really can’t defend themselves against pesticides.”
