    Anecdotal. I would rather not hear about pesticide salesmanship. Thanks.

    Monarch butterflies
    are undergoing a long-term population decline.Although different factors are hypothesized to cause this decline,one potential factor is the exposure of their milkweed host plantsto neonicotinoid insecticides when growing in close proximity toagricultural fields.
    The wildflowers and syriaca milkweed plants that are growing next to the vast corn and soybean fields in the upper Midwest are teaming with monarch butterflies, other butterflies and bumblebees like thisdespite the fact that those crops are grown from
    neonicotinoid coatedseeds: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.youtube.com_watch-3Fv-3DOoPdnTepKok&d=AwIF-g&c=-dg2m7zWuuDZ0MUcV7Sdqw&r=tVAKMFPe3UCcsMWUFXo0FeX0xe1JUAj77B74DAI3DKI&m=iGNguAoVI1IeMKlQsJk-G7klHel8n1bEAiv-DyLOJuM&s=TEzu7-3qb0rfTdP8_

    So it would be a real stretch look a midwestern farmer in the eye with a straight face and say: mind if we use your property to try and determineif the neonicotinoid insecticides you use might be a significant cause of the midwestern monarch population
    decline?

    Not sure what the teeming monarchs in these videos are evidence for. The dates show that the monarch migration was underway when they were recorded. We have large numbers of monarchs moving through MN at this time-but where are they coming from? Not
    necessarily from the roadsides and hayfields in the corn-beans carpet.

    Monarch butterflies are undergoing a long-term population decline.
    Although different factors are hypothesized to cause this decline,
    one potential factor is the exposure of their milkweed host plants
    to neonicotinoid insecticides when growing in close proximity to
    agricultural fields.

    The wildflowers and syriaca milkweed plants that are growing next to
    the vast corn and soybean fields in the upper Midwest are teaming
    with monarch butterflies, other butterflies and bumblebees like this
    despite the fact that those crops are grown from neonicotinoid coated
    seeds:

    So it would be a real stretch look a midwestern farmer in the eye with a straight face and say: “mind if we use your property to try and determine
    if the neonicotinoid insecticides you use might be a significant cause of
    the midwestern monarch population decline?”
