The Neonicotinoid pesticides affect sucking insects. Bees are sucking insects. What a STUPID and HARMFUL act it was to create these insecticides and then get them approved.  >:( :(

Before it’s too late

Biopesticides may be a long-term solution for replacing neonicotinoids and other pesticides, although they are in a very early stage of development. Spider venom-based pesticides can still be lethal to the”main target audience”, and the bees coming in contact with them don’t the show the adverse effects of neonicotinoids. The agent originates from the venomous Blue Mountains funnel-web spider of Australia. The spider venom was mixed with a carrier protein, and injected into the bees in sucrose solutions.

Such direct and high exposure to the pesticide is not expected under natural circumstances. During the experiment, about every sixth bee died within 48 hours, but the rest remained completely “functional”. This start is reassuring, but the researchers have still to determine how bumblebees or wasps react to the same substance.
