Nonlethal exposure of honey bees to thiamethoxam (neonicotinoid systemic pesticide) causes high mortality due to homing failure at levels that could put a colony at risk of collapse. Simulated exposure events on free-ranging foragers labeled with a radio-frequency identification tag suggest that homing is impaired by thiamethoxam intoxication. These experiments offer new insights into the consequences of common neonicotinoid pesticides used worldwide.
I don't have a problem with a study that claims things like "could put colony at risk", "simulated exposure events", and "suggest thiamethoxam intoxication".
The study (at least the abstract you linked to) is only talking about posibilities...this is different from dr,. lu has done.
