Wonderful! Imidacloprid! It is now confirmed so many times over that this member of the neonictinoid "family" is a destroyer of valuable pollinators, including honeybees, that NO ONE can any longer claim innocence in its application....including all of you chemical farmers who call yourselves "stewards of the land." You are no such thing. Just admit you are part of the machine that is killing our natural world and be done with it!
