    This study has been fairly thoroughly discredited. Feed Insecticides to bees and bees die - not a big surprise.

    It hasn't been discredited. It does need to be replicated with a better experimental design though.

    The delayed lethality of the neonics is the issue.

    It has been discredited. You just won't accept the facts. If you feed bees poison approaching LD50 you should expect death. The surprise is the bees lived as long as they did.

    Poorly designed and executed study = discredited study.
