    Thank goodness those nasty neonics will soon be gone and we can go back to spraying good ole sevin again. I am sure our bees are going to appreciate that. We must remember that science is not important it is the consensus of radicals that counts.

    Personally, my favorite oldie is parathion. Did a really good job on most every insect or animal it came in contact with including birds, and many 4 and even 2 legged animals.

    Neonics activate acetylcholine receptors in the insect nervous system, leading to paralysis. Lacking a central nervous system...or any nervous system for that matter...or the ability to move to any significant extent...plants don't need to be GMOd to be resistant to neonics.

    Maybe you should stop reading conspiracy sites and actually look up the science...you'll look less foolish that way.
