SYSTEMIC PESTICIDES

Posted: 27/07/2012 at 20:43

I was horrified to learn that BBC presenters are put under pressure to promote pesticides.

I think it's time we wrote some letters in defense of Monty Don and to applaud him for his stance against these dangerous products which should be banned from use in fields as well as gardens. .

Spitfire, consider yourself lucky to have bees close by. It's a sign that your environment is still healthy enough to support them, unfortunately they are in trouble all over due to intensive agricuture and the use of the new systemic pesticides (the type that's in Provado and similar products). Unfortunately many gardeners use them as they don't know what damage they are causing.

I agree with beesontoast, try to find out what type of bee you have and if it's honeybees get in touch with Biobees forum or a local beekeeper. If you have bumblebees they will disappear after they have reared new queens at the end of summer.
