Year-round presence of neonicotinoid insecticides in tributaries to the Great Lakes, USA

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

To better understand the transport of neonicotinoid insecticides into the Great Lakes, monthly samples (October 2015-September 2016) were collected from 10 tributaries to the Great Lakes, USA. At least one neonicotinoid was detected in 74% of the monthly samples with up to three neonicotinoids detected in an individual sample (10% of all samples). The most frequently detected neonicotinoid was imidacloprid (53%) followed by clothianidin (44%), thiamethoxam (22%), acetamiprid (2%), and dinotefuran (1%). Thiacloprid was not detected in any samples. More spatially intensive samples from were collected in an agriculturally dominated area (Maumee River, Ohio) twice during spring 2016. Three neonicotinoids were ubiquitously detected (clothiandin, imidacloprid, thiamethoxam) in all water samples collected within this basin.
