Where have all the ladybirds gone?

This two part article from Australia by Marilyn Steiner and Stephen Goodwin is well worth reading.

Part I examines neonicotinoid uses in Australia and problems ascribed to their use overseas, particularly massive losses of honey bees.

In Part II the authors explore the evidence for neonicotinoid impacts on honey bees, the role of governments in regulating pesticides, and the changes required to adequately evaluate their environmental safety.
