    Its not surprising that insecticides harm insects
    The thing about neonics is persistence in the environment
    Again its not surprising that a proportion of a seed dressing stays in the soil
    Solution is buy only organic fruit and veg etc

    Spot on that is their designated purpose. Persistence is not something restricted to neonics, some pyrethroids have reported half lives of up to 2 years in soils. No insecticides/pesticides are good for bees, but perhaps seed dressing vs spraying might be worth a thought in their application. Spraying does tend to kill pretty quickly whats is underneath the spray.
