Pesticide poisoning can be a pervasive problem in the agricultural landscape.  The lethal and sublethal ramifications for managed and wild pollinators are difficult to predict and quantify, but it is well-established that spraying crops in bloom, or spraying crops with blooming weeds, can be a major cause of honey bee kills, as well as the harmful and largely unnoticed kills of other pollinators.  Pesticide safety for pollinators is an important consideration for all growers and other landowners.
