Neonicotinoid Pesticides Pose Low Risk to Honey Bees

While neonicotinoid pesticides can harm honey bees, a new study by Washington State University researchers shows that the substances pose little risk to bees in real-world settings.

After calculating the risk based on a "dietary no observable adverse effect concentration" – the highest experimental point before there is an adverse effect on a species – of five parts per billion, the study's results suggest low potential for neonicotinoids to harm bee behavior or colony health.
