    Is gyphosate a neonicotinoid? I did not think it was and cannot find it in any list of neonicotinoids. Does Monsanto actually make any neonicotinoids?

    Now I despise Monsanto for a variety of reasons - not the least of which being that my hometown was left with a superfund toxic waste site after Monsanto left. To say nothing of the fact that their Bt corn causes damage in so many ways, from threats to butterflies and the overuse and therefore ruining a good organic control of destructive caterpillars, as well as  their thuggish tactics with farmers to their control of seed production.

    But I think it is of paramount importance to blame the right company for neonicotinoids and I think that is Bayer.

     CCD is a huge disaster and to combat it, we need not to conflate it with other problems. But I am certainly not an expert so I welcome any information. Thanks.
