EFSA identifies risks to bees from neonicotinoids

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has identified a number of risks posed to bees by three neonicotinoid insecticides.
Risks associated with the use of clothianidin, imidacloprid and thiamethoxam as seed treatment or as granules, with particular regard to: their acute and chronic effects on bee colony survival and development; their effects on bee larvae and bee behaviour; and the risks posed by sub-lethal doses[2] of the three substances were identified.
Given the importance of bees in the ecosystem and the food chain and given the multiple services they provide to humans, their protection is essential.
