I saw in New Scientist a while back, that there had been field trials by researchers in a wide range of areas of this effect and that there was no evidence to back up the claims of pesticide effects in Coke or Pepsi. Still it would be interesting to see what would happen if there actually were effects, it certainly would make for a cheap spray!
