Comment: The issue was glyphosphate (RoundUp) is not a neonicotinoid.

In post: Proof

The issue was glyphosphate (RoundUp) is not a neonicotinoid.

Go back and reread the bet.

Of course neonicotinoids are chemically similar to nicotine. Nicotine was the first of the compounds discovered, and all of the new (NEO) nicotine derived chemicals (NICOTINOIDS) are called neonicotinoids.

Glyphosphate is an unrelated chemical. People are blaming Monsanto for the neonicotinoid link to Colony Collapse Disorder even though their herbicide has not been linked to anything.
