"Neonics" are synthetic chemicals designed to mimic the natural toxic effects of nicotine. They affect the nervous system of insects, humans and other animals, and are highly toxic to invertebrates such as bees. Neonics are systemic: the chemicals are applied to the soil and brought up through the roots into the plant tissues, including the nectar and pollen produced by the plant. When bees and other pollinators take the pollen home to feed to their larvae, they are inadvertently poisoning their offspring.
Assembly Bill AB162 was introduced to the Nevada State Assembly Natural Resources Committee on March 1. The bill seeks to prohibit the use of neonicotinoid insecticides on ornamental plants in the state of Nevada. Help Save the Bees Foundation supported AB162 by funding lobbyists and testifying in the Assembly and Senate hearings.
AB162 was signed into law by Gov. Lombardo on May 30, 2023!

Roundup alternatives without glyphosate are available and can be effective. Organic brand options use naturally occurring oils or acids, and some alternatives can even be made with household ingredients. Farmers may find it easier to use different herbicides or farming methods.
Interest in alternatives to Roundup has grown quickly since concerns emerged over the herbicide’s safety. Its active ingredient, glyphosate, is branded as a probable cause of cancer by the United Nation’s International Agency for Research on Cancer. But regulators in the United States have said glyphosate does not pose a risk to people’s health or the environment.
At the same time, more than 13,000 Roundup lawsuits claiming the pesticide caused non-Hodgkin lymphoma or other cancers have been filed in courts around the United States.
