Tom Theobald is a long time beekeeper who lives outside Boulder, Colorado. Tom has been sounding the alarm about the problem we all face with the over use and accumulation of neonicotinoids (neonics) in the environment since before his July, 2010 article in Bee Culture.
Jeff and Kim talk with Tom about his personal research and the concerns he has on neonicotinoid use, its impact on our environment and of course the cumulative effect on honey bees and other pollinators.
It is a discussion that has raised passions on all sides of the debate. You can read Tom's original article on the neonic problem here: https://www.beeculture.com/toms-podcast-special/
Kim wraps up the show with his Inner Covered.
