US forum on pesticides and bees
The US EPA and the USDA have convened a public meeting aimed at reducing the exposure of bees and other pollinators to pesticides. It will focus specifically on pesticide-treated seed, including the technology of seed treatment and the management of dust associated with such seed. The meeting will also address best management techniques associated with commercial agriculture and bees. It will be held at the EPA Office of Pesticide Programs’ headquarters in Arlington, Virginia on March 5th.
