Three neonicotinoids down, more bee-killing pesticides to go
Failure to address the wider chemical burden on bees could mean that farmers simply replace banned chemicals with other permitted chemicals that may be just as harmful, warned Greenpeace. To avoid this, the EU must:

  • ban all neonicotinoids, as France is considering [2];

  • apply the same strict testing standards to all pesticides [3];

  • dramatically reduce the use of synthetic pesticides and support the transition to ecological methods of pest control.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
