Neonicotinoid

Neonicotinoid Pesticides

Over the past few decades, the world has seen an alarming decrease in pollinator populations. The exact source of this loss has yet to be determined, but one cause may be the extensive use of neonicotinoid pesticides. Ongoing research continues to show the negative effects of these pesticides on honeybees and other pollinators (not to mention humans as well!), and some countries are even seeking to ban their use.

As part of a class project, a recent group of UW-Eau Claire students created short videos to explore the roles of pollinators in nature and highlight the ecological and health problems related to neonicotinoid pesticides. Their hope is that these videos, housed on YouTube, will educate a wide audience and bring light to this issue.
