Pesticides Ban

Based on scientific evidence showing the damage that neonicotinoids have contaminated landscapes and colonies of bees, the United Kingdom will back a total ban on insect-harming pesticides in fields across Europe. Neonicotinoids are the world’s most widely used insecticide but in 2013 the European Union banned their use on flowering crops, although the UK was among the nations opposing the ban. The European Commission now wants a total ban on their use outside of greenhouses, with a vote expected in December, and the UK’s new position makes it very likely to pass.
