Incident Reporting in Pesticide Exposure to Honey Bees

The second of a five-part webinar series of presentations by the Environmental Protection Agency on pesticides effect to honey bees.

The webinar will focus on what incident reports are and how they are used in ecological risk assessments. Incidents are a critical line of evidence that the EPA uses to understand how chemicals may be acting under actual use conditions. The amount of information that is contained in incident reports can directly impact the extent to which the information can be used to support ecological risk assessment and influence regulatory decisions. Incident data are one of the areas in which the general public and particularly beekeepers can play an effective role in the risk assessment process.
