Oregon Restricts Use of Certain Dinotefuran Pesticides

An estimated 25,000-50,000 bumblebees and other insects died recently in Oregon as a result of exposure to dinotefuran, a commonly used neonicotinoid. The pesticide was applied to 55 flowering linden trees by a property maintenance contractor in an effort to control aphids.

The Oregon Department of Agriculture is restricting the use of 18 pesticide products containing the active ingredient dinotefuran while it continues the investigation of a large kill of bumblebees.

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be
    running off the screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is
    a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured
    I’d post to let you know. The design look great
    though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Thanks
