Neonicotinoids have passed off the stage of media attention, but they have not gone away. This is both bad and good news. Bad for Santa Barbara, California, and other cities where industrial agriculture is practiced in the surround area. Good news in that those same cities are finally being forced to address this issue. Perhaps finally the death — in all sense of that word — grip of the chemical companies is loosening, at least at the local level.
