US FWS aims to end neonic use in some wildlife refuges

The US Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) plans to phase out the use of neonicotinoids in refuges within its Pacific Region, citing "growing concern" about the impacts of the insecticides on bees and other pollinators. The goal is for refuge managers to no longer use neonicotinoids in "any agricultural activity" by January 2016, according to a July 9th memo by Pacific Region refuge chief Kevin Foerster. The region includes the Northwest states of Idaho, Oregon and Washington as well as the Hawaiian and other Pacific Islands.
