Bee issues and Neonicotinoids

Kay Stewart has pointed out the issues around Neonicotinoids. She also suggested a site where you could donate $4 to create a marketing interrupt to tell the story to Independent Garden Center owners.

Our online buddy, "Garden Contessa" send us a bunch of links that give more info.

For now, here is a list of Neonicotinoids that show up in consumer-level products for home gardens. These are generic names, along with brand names.
