Some ‘bee-friendly’ plants treated with harmful pesticides, study finds | sustainability and resilience | Scoop.it
Half of the “bee-friendly” plants sampled among nursery plants in B.C. tested positive for a class of pesticides implicated in widespread bee die-offs, according to a new study released by a consortium of environmental groups in the United States and Canada. Plants widely promoted as attractive to pollinators were collected from London, Ontario, Montreal, Quebec and Vancouver-area nurseries and home stores and tested for the presence of neonicotinoids, also known as neonics, a class of pesticides mainly used on corn and soybean seed, but also on lawns and nursery plants, according to the report released Wednesday by Friends of the Earth Canada.
