Klamath Falls, Ore.– The Oregon Department of Agriculture is temporarily banning the use of two pesticides due to a recent surge in bee deaths in Oregon. Dinotefuran and Imidacloprid are used on trees, but may be connected with the recent deaths of hundreds of pollinating bees in Eugene and Beaverton.
