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.
The study (at least the abstract you linked to) is only talking about posibilities...this is different from dr,. lu has done.
