Electrophysiology experiments carried out by Wright’s team showed that bees cannot taste neonicotinoids, so something else is attracting them to the pesticides. “The incontrovertible fact that bees show a preference for food containing neonicotinoids is concerning as it indicates that, like nicotine, neonicotinoids may act like a drug to make foods containing these elements more moneymaking,” Wright says. “We don’t have evidence that they’re addicted, but they can be. ” If neonicotinoid taken care of plants coax bees to come to a crop field persistently, it may possibly have a “terrible impact on whole colonies and on bee populations,” she says.
