ABSTRACT
The article reports on the plan of Bayer CropScience to review a factually inaccurate study for publication in the June 2012 issue of the "Bulletin of Insectology," regarding imidacloprid's supposed impact on honey bee colony health. However, the study was not able to explain the causes of colony collapse disorder (CCD), since the symptoms observed in the study are not consistent with those of CCD. The authors also ignored the scientific consensus that bee health is impaired by several factors.
