Report from European Parliament on Pesticide Research

The European Parliament's Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety released a report this month "Existing Scientific Evidence of the Effects of Neonicotinoid Pesticides on Bees" providing an overview about neonicotinoid uses and recent scientific findings on their impact on bee colony survival and development. The report makes suggestions for future approaches including a ban on certain neonicotinoids applications harmful to bees.
