2013 bee kill in almond orchard from tank mix of fertilizer, herbicide, spray oil
Real-world field exposures—TANK MIXES– beyond EPA’s scope
EPA’s Biological & Economic Analysis Division (BEAD) stated, “Regarding the assessment of honey bee exposure to multiple pesticide mixtures, evaluation of pesticide environmental mixtures to any taxa is considered beyond the scope of the *EFED assessment . . .
However, it is acknowledged that not considering mixtures could over- or under- estimate risks depending on the type of interaction and factors discussed above.”
*EFED= Environmental Fate & Effects Division of EPA
A multi-year field study to evaluate the environmental fate and agronomic effects of insecticide mixtures
Bees are more crucial to agriculture than fertilizer
