In the US, sales of seeds pre-treated with neonics tripled from 2004 to 2014.However concerns over their environmental impacts have also grown and they have been consistently associated with causing harm to bees. So great has the worry been, that there has been a moratorium on their use on flowering crops in the European Union since 2013.A study in 2015 from the US Geological Survey (USGS) found that neonics were widespread in water samples collected from 48 different rivers and streams in the US.
Pretreated and doused while growing. It’s everywhere and in everything. Think on this – how do you grow organic crops if the water your nourishing them with has neonics in it?!
