SCIENTISTS WORK TO SOLVE NEONIC ISSUES

Two leading scientists – Christian Krupke, an insect specialist at Purdue University, and Art Schaafsma, an entomologist at the University of Guelph in Canada – have come up with two very different ways to solve the problem of neonic pesticides and bee deaths. Schaafsma, who believes neonics are valuable tools in the fight against pests, has retrofitted planters to create less neonic dust when planting. Krupke, on the other hand, believes neonics provide little benefit to farmers and simply advises farmers to stop using neonic-coated seeds. (NPR’s The Salt)
