France is the first European country to ban five bee killing pesticides
In a bold move France bans all five bee killing pesticides. This will help to protect the dwindling bee colonies. Bee hive collapse brought the bad news of how many widely use pesticides that are bee killing been colonies.
The bold move to ban the worst five neonicotinoids. Was widely welcomed by many beekeepers. This is great news for the bees and the environment. This in turn helps to protect agriculture.
The ban comes into force throughout France on Saturday the 15th of September 2018. It is hoped Frances ban, will further a ban by the European Union. This concerns the three worse pesticides, which are neonicotinoids, imidacloprid and thiamethoxam. These are all that are used on crops and often in greenhouses.
