During the past 20 years, insecticides applied to U.S. agricultural
landscapes have become significantly more toxic—over 120-fold in some
midwestern states—to honey bees when ingested
Researchers identified rising neonicotinoid seed treatments in corn
and soy as the primary driver of this change.

This toxicity has increased during the same period in which widespread
decline in populations of pollinators and other insects have been
documented.

"This dramatic increase in oral-based toxic load is connected to a
shift toward widespread use of neonicotinoid insecticides, which are
unusually toxic to bees when they are ingested," said researcher
Maggie Douglas.
