Neonicotinoids in Australia

June Stoyer and I interviewed Australian commercial beekeeper Jeffrey Gibbs and that interview aired today. This is an important interview, the supporters of systemic pesticides have cited Australia as an example of a continent with no problems, but Mr. Gibbs presents a quite different view. One key difference is that varroa mites, used repeatedly as an excuse for the U.S. bee losses, are not present in Australia.

If you have not already done so, you should also listen to the interview with Graham White of Scotland done last week, speaking on the problems in Europe and the UK.
