European Commission Bans Use of Three Neonicortinoid Pesticides Implicated in Honey Bee Population Decline

June 24, 2013

The European Commission has imposed a ban on three neonicortinoid pesticides within the European Union – clothianidin, imidacloprid, and thiametoxam. This follows the publication of a series of reviews into the risks posed by the insecticides by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) in Parma, Italy, in January 2013.1,2,3 These reviews stem from the publication of numerous chromatographic studies, which suggest a link between pesticide exposure and “colony collapse disorderâ€â€“ the mysterious decline of honeybee populations.
