Location: Ballroom 2
Speakers: Joseph Bischoff, PhD, Lin Schmale
Much has been written and is being circulated about the impact that neonicotinoid insecticide use could be having on pollinator populations. Because not all the questions yet have sound scientific answers, too much of what is being written is based on hearsay, innuendo, and fear. Now, some local and a few state bodies are weighing restricting neonicotinoid insecticide use. Joe and Lin will present the facts as research has demonstrated them and how to use the neonics effectively and responsibly with minimal non-target effects.
This session is open to all attendees. This session may be eligible for pesticide recertification credit.
