Such great news that the UK government is getting behind the move to ban neonicotinoids across Europe.
Hopefully this means the ban will definitely go through due to the devastating effect neonicotinoids have on the bee and insect population.
What this article doesn't mention though, is the fact that neonicotinoids are potentially carcinogenic, with research linking to breast cancer.
The thousands of different pesticides sprayed on our crops are wreaking havoc on plant species, natural habitats, wildlife, the environment and our health. So, at least the government have finally woken up to neonicotinoids.
