High doses of neonics have been responsible for several high profile bee kill offs in Canada. However, even with doses far below the lethal dose of neonics, a strong and growing body of science shows that these pesticides contribute to impairment in bee reproduction, learning, memory, hive communications and immune response. In Gardeners Beware 2014, all garden plant samples where neonics were detected have the potential to harm or even kill bees.

THUNDER BAY – WEATHER – There are no weather warnings or alerts in effect.

The Lakehead Region Conservation Authority has ended the Flood Warning for the Thunder Bay region. There are still many roads across the region impacted by flooding and washouts.

In the City of Thunder Bay, the roads crews are out sweeping up a winter’s worth of grime and potholes and sinkholes are an issue. Drive with care.

There are parts of Canada that the Weather Network is saying will likely receive, wait for it… snow .. by the weekend. While parts of our region are included in that forecast, there is nothing solid to report yet.

Remember, NO MOW MAY to let pollinators thrive.
