Re: CULT: Systemic insecticides and non-target insects

There was a controlled study in Kentucky that found no adverse effects
so far of Merit (systemic insecticide) on bumblebees (caged bees exposed
to either Merit treated plants or untreated).  They thought
concentrations of Merit was too low in pollen/nectar to cause problems
for the bees. It's an ongoing study.

That was the only study I found using Google, but I only checked some of
the hits.  Anybody have access to Current Contents or Science Citation
Index?  I didn't limit my search to .edu & .gov sites, which might have
turned up more studies.
