Beekeepers in Manitoba can report pesticide incidents that result in observable symptoms or effect on honey bees. Incidents may include in-hive as well as field crop incidents. For general information on how to file a pesticide incident report you can contact Rheal or David. Please note that the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) is ultimately responsible for investigating and regulating pesticides. The Pesticide Incident Reporting Form (Environmental Incident) used to report pesticide impact to bees can be found on the following website: http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/cps-spc/pest/part/protect-proteger/incident/index-eng.php or contact the Pest Management Information Service Centre: 1-800-267-6315.
