More evidence links pesticides to honeybee losses | Grist

three studies have been released that strengthen the link between bee die-offs and neonicotinoids (neonics), the chemical family of which clothianidin is a member. Here's what they found:

Study No. 1: Bees exposed to pesticides are getting lost.

Study No. 2: Bee colonies exposed to pesticides are smaller and the ratio of males to females is way off.

Study No. 3: The more pesticides bees are exposed to, the faster they die.
