Could neonicotinoids be a major causative factor in the decline of ladybugs ?,0,2008724.story

Well, it looks like, in addition to honeybees, ladybugs are also in decline. 

Recent studies have shown a link between neonicontinoids and the colony collapse disorder of honeybees. It’s not much of a stretch to hypothesize that neonicotinoids, which were engineered to kill certain insects, might have an adverse effect on most insects..

I think historians in the future will look at our time and wonder why there has been such a dearth of common sense when it came to neonicontinoids. I am reminded of the Forrest Gump quote, “Stupid is as stupid does..” (sigh).
