A single 
honeybee visits hundreds, sometimes thousands, of flowers a day in search of nectar and pollen. Then it must find its way back to the hive, navigating distances up to five miles (eight kilometers), and perform a “waggle dance” to tell the other bees where the flowers are.

A new study shows that long-term exposure to a combination of certain pesticides might impair the bee’s ability to carry out its pollen mission.

“Any impairment in their ability to do this could have a strong effect on their survival,” said Geraldine Wright, a neuroscientist at Newcastle University in England and co-author of a new study posted online February 7, 2013, in theJournal of Experimental Biology.

Wright’s study adds to the growing body of research that shows that the honeybee’s ability to thrive is being threatened. Scientists are still researching how pesticides may be contributing to colony collapse disorder (CCD), a rapid die-off seen in millions of honeybees throughout the world since 2006.

“Pesticides are very likely to be involved in CCD and also in the loss of other types of pollinators,” Wright said. (See the diversity of pollinating creatures in a photo gallery from National Geographic magazine.)

Thesis etymology
Bees depend on what’s called “scent memory” to find flowers teeming with nectar and pollen. Their ability to rapidly learn, remember, and communicate with each other has made them highly efficient foragers, using the waggle dance to educate others about the site of the food source.

Protecting pollinators should be a major consideration for all growers, large and small, before implementing any pesticide program.

The blossom is the only part of the plant that attracts pollinators. Therefore, growers should avoid using pesticides during the time fields of flowers are in bloom and pollinators are buzzing around, flitting from flower to flower, sipping nectar and busily performing the job of pollination.

Entire colonies of honey bees have been eradicated because pesticides were applied to a non-blooming crop, and a breeze carried the dangerous chemicals to a field of blossoms in close proximity or even to fields of clover or native plants growing along the roadway several miles away.

Chemicals distributed by large machinery are especially dangerous to pollinators, but crop dusting from the air is even more hazardous.

Applying insecticides in the evening is less harmful than morning or midday applications.

In addition, growers can help by making an effort not to dispense chemicals unless the air is still, and they should avoid spraying when bees are at their busiest.

Pesticide dust is especially dangerous to pollinators and people. The tiny chemical particles are so easily and unintentionally digested or dispersed in the wind.

Scientists at the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), together with experts from across Europe, concluded on Wednesday that for imidacloprid “only uses on crops not attractive to honeybees were considered acceptable” because of exposure through nectar and pollen. Crops that attract honeybees include oil seed rape, corn and sunflowers. EFSA was asked to consider the acute and chronic effects on bee larvae, bee behaviour and the colony as a whole, and the risks posed by sub-lethal doses. But it found a widespread lack of information in many areas and had stated previously that current “simplistic” regulations contained “major weaknesses”.

“This is a major turning point in the battle to save our bees,” said Friends of the Earth’s Andrew Pendleton: “EFSA have sounded the death knell for one of the chemicals most frequently linked to bee decline and cast serious doubt over the safety of the whole neonicotinoid family. Ministers must wake up to the fact that these chemicals come with an enormous sting in the tail by immediately suspending the use of these pesticides.”
