Faced with insectageddon, there is one thing we can be sure of… pesticides kill insects; because that’s what they’re meant to do. Even the makers will admit to that.
What about the implementation of insect offset…? Give a value to the weight of insects a given amount of insecticide will kill (maybe just the collaterals), then you oblige the manufacturer to invest resources into creating the same weight of insects elsewhere.
Opportunities for greenwashing? Probably.
Worth debating? I was rather hoping so.
