Why Our Products Don’t Include Neonicotinoids

Amid a well-documented, global decline in bees worldwide, pesticides containing neonicotinoids are thought to be causing significant damage to a wide range of beneficial species. A large study has found that honey bees can be among those at risk.

Neonicotinoids became popular as insects evolved resistance to other compounds, and they are now the world’s most widely used class of insecticides. They are commonly coated on seeds rather than sprayed on leaves, so they guard against soil pests; later, the seedlings take up the pesticide, protecting the plant from insects. But neonicotinoids also find their way into pollen and nectar, posing a threat to pollinators. — Science Magazine (6-29-17)

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How does ORGANOCIDE Bee Safe Insect Killer work?

  • Dense oil spray smothers target insects on contact. The fatty acids in the oil are toxic to the target insects and they are unable to develop a resistance.
  • Once liquid dries, a micro-film is left on the plant. Any hatchlings of the target insects get trapped in the film and die.
  • Females arriving after treatment detect the film and will not lay eggs on the treated plant, recognizing the area as hazard to their eggs.
