MEPs call for better bee protection

Parliaments Greens have launched on Tuesday 22 January a campaign aimed at preventing the negative impacts of pesticides and genetically modified organisms (GMOs) on bees, food products and the livelihood of beekeepers, asking for an “urgent transition to bee friendly and sustainable farming" (Belgian deputy Bart Staes).
Greens are also calling for an immediate ban on the toxic bee killers and a ban on GMO crops and GMO contaminated honey, according to Staes.
A recent report by the European food safety authority (EFSA) directly links the decline in bee population to the use of pesticides, in particular neonicotinoids.
