Here's an alternative view, including a comment by Randy Oliver, who says "By my math, sulfoxaflor applied at even the maximum rate of active ingredient per acre should be far less toxic to bees than is [the neonicotinoid ] imidacloprid applied at its normal rate." ... ence-says/

There are different formulations of this pesticide, but the label for this one does say it is highly toxic to bees. I am not a scientist and I've never played one on t.v., but it seems like expanding the use is not a good idea unless it means that I may go hungry without it.
