dc.description.abstractNeonicotinoids are a class of pesticide that has become popular recently because of their relative safety and effectiveness. However, "neonics" as they are nicknamed, have been implicated in the rise of Colony Collapse Disorder, a phenomenon in which whole colonies of honey bees suddenly die or disappear. This paper discusses the possible relationship between the pesticide and the disorder and what precautions can be taken to minimize the risk to honey bees, native bees, and other pollinators.
