(Maine Public) A bill making its way through the Maine Legislature seeks to restrict and limit the use of four specific pesticides: clothianidin, dinotefuran, imidacloprid and thiamethoxam. Under the bill, the named pesticides would no longer be available for home and landscape use, and would require certification for use.
(Maine Public) Environment Maine delivered a petition of 8000 signatures to the governor’s office Wednesday, asking that Gov. Janet Mills support a statewide ban of neonicotinoids. Mills was not present to receive the petition.
