Abstract:

"First introduced in the 1990s, neonicotinoids are a class of highly selective insecticides derived from the insecticide, nicotine. Individual neonicotinoids include imidacloprid, clothiandin, thiamethoxam, dinotefuran, hiacloprid and acteamiprid.2 In 2005, neonicotinoids accounted for approximately 11%-15% of the total insecticide market. With trends of increasing detection of residue levels in food from 4.7% in 2007 to 12.6% in 2010, these results point to an increase in the overall usage of neonicotinoids worldwide. Although the usage rates of neonicotinoids in Canada could not be obtained, pesticide sales in Canada report that thiamethoxam and clothianidin were in the top 10 insecticide active ingredients sold in 2010"--Background.
