The Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks started the Multi-Media Monitoring Study in 2015, in support of Ontario's Pollinator Health Action Plan, to measure changes in neonicotinoid insecticide concentrations in the environment following restrictions on the use of neonicotinoid-treated corn and soybean seeds. This data characterizes neonicotinoid concentrations in streams in five southern Ontario watersheds. The other components of the Multi-Media Monitoring Study (soil neonicotinoid concentrations and benthic invertebrate data) are available separately.

The data, which includes seeds treated with neonicotinoids (treated seed) and not treated with neonicotinoids (untreated seed) must be submitted no later than October 31 of each year, for the previous 12-month period ending August 30. The data includes: * total mass, in tonnes, of treated seed sold or transferred, or that was treated by a custom seed treater,  that contained imidacloprid, clothianidin or thiamthoxam * total number of acres that could have been planted with this amount of treated seed * total mass, in tonnes, of untreated corn and soybean seed sold or transferred Further information This dataset is related to the following: 1. Stream Neonicotinoid Monitoring Study 2. Soil Neonicotinoid Monitoring Study 3.

The Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks started a project to characterize the number of species of bumble bees and the relative abundances of these species in southwestern Ontario in support of the Pollinator Health Action Plan. Bumble bees were collected from 46 locations to compare the diversity of bees occurring in agricultural and more natural areas. The data includes: * sampling locations, including GPS coordinates and the county name * the number of bumble bee individuals sampled at each site, listed for each species and for each caste of a species (queen, worker, male) * other site details, such as the date of the site visit View this data on an interactive map This dataset is related to the following: 1. Stream Neonicotinoid Monitoring Study 2.

The Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks, with assistance from the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, started the Pollen Monitoring Network in 2015, in support of Ontario's Pollinator Health Action Plan. This was to measure changes in pesticide (neonicotinoid insecticide, insecticide and fungicide) concentrations following restrictions on the use of neonicotinoid-treated corn and soybean seeds. The data contains measurements of pesticide (neonicotinoid insecticide, insecticide and fungicide) concentrations in pollen samples collected from honeybee yards in Ontario.

The Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks started a project to determine the potential levels and occurrence of neonicotinoid insecticides in Ontario source waters and treated drinking waters, in support of Ontario's Pollinator Health Action Plan. Samples were collected from four drinking water systems that participate in the Drinking Water Surveillance Program. Locations selected for monitoring focused on areas with significant corn/soybean acreage and history of pesticides detections.

Neonicotinoids are the most widely used insecticides in the world. They are preferentially toxic to insects while displaying a low toxicity toward vertebrates, and this selective toxicity has resulted in the rapid and ubiquitous use of these compounds. However, neonicotinoids have been detected in agricultural surface waters and are known to cause adverse effects in non-target aquatic organisms. A wide range of toxicity has been reported for aquatic crustaceans, but most of the studies focus on the acute effects of imidacloprid, and few data are available regarding chronic effects of other neonicotinoids or neonicotinoid replacements (e.g., butenolides).

Neonicotinoids are the most widely used insecticides in the world and selective toxicity has resulted in the rapid and ubiquitous use of these compounds. Neonicotinoids are a class of neuro-active insecticides chemically similar to nicotine and are widely used in agriculture to protect crops from various insects. They are also used for other purposes, including killing insects in homes, controlling fleas on pets, and protecting trees from invasive insects such as the Emerald Ash borer. To date Imidacloprid is the most widely used insecticide in the world.

Neonicotinoid insecticides are environmentally persistent and highly water-soluble, and thus are prone to leaching into surface waters where they may negatively affect non-target aquatic insects. Most of the research to date has focused on imidacloprid, and few data are available regarding the effects of other neonicotinoids or their proposed replacements (butenolide insecticides). The objective of this study was to assess the toxicity of six neonicotinoids (imidacloprid, thiamethoxam, acetamiprid, clothianidin, thiacloprid, and dinotefuran) and one butenolide (flupyradifurone) to Hexagenia spp. (mayfly larvae).

Widespread agricultural use of neonicotinoid insecticides has resulted in frequent detection of mixtures of these compounds in global surface waters. Recent evidence suggests that neonicotinoid mixtures can elicit synergistic toxicity in aquatic insects under acute exposure conditions, however this has not been validated for longer exposures more commonly encountered in the environment. Therefore, we aimed to characterize the chronic (28-day) toxicity of imidacloprid, clothianidin, and thiamethoxam mixtures under different doses and mixture ratios to determine if the assumption of synergistic toxicity would hold under more environmentally realistic exposure settings. The sensitive aquatic insect Chironomus dilutus was used as a representative test species, and successful emergence was used as a chronic endpoint.
