EU Approves Ban on 'Bee-Killing' Neonicotinoids 

SNIPPET:

European governments approved Friday a proposal to widen a ban on neonicotinoid pesticides that studies have found are harmful to bees 🐝 and other 🦋 🐞 pollinators.

The move completely bans the outdoor uses of three neonicotinoids, or neonics, across the European Union. They include Bayer CropScience's imidacloprid ☠️, Syngenta's thiamethoxam ☠️ and clothianidin ☠️ developed by Takeda Chemical Industries and Bayer CropScience.

The EU had already opted for a partial ban in 2013 on the use of the three chemicals on flowering crops that attract bees, such as maize, wheat, barley, oats and oil seed r a p e (canola).

"All outdoor uses will be banned and the neonicotinoids in question will only be allowed in permanent greenhouses where exposure of bees is not expected," the European Commission said in a statement.

In February, the European Food Safety Authority issued a report adding to the mounting scientific evidence that neonics are a risk to wild bees and honeybees, whose numbers have been plummeting in recent years.

"The Commission had proposed these measures months ago, on the basis of the scientific advice from the European Food Safety Authority," Vytenis Andriukaitis, the European commissioner for Health and Food Safety said today.

"Bee health remains of paramount importance for me since it concerns biodiversity, food production and the environment."
