The neonicotinoid debate - a political one

After 20 years of intense research, no adverse effects at honey bee colony level have been found to be caused by systemic neonicotinoid residues in blossoms of seed-treated crops under realistic field conditions.

Intoxication incidents with seed treatment products led to bee mortalities in 2008 in Germany and Slovenia; they were accidents, caused by a faulty seed treatment; since then, many safety measures have been put in place to even further reduce the risk of dust drift harming pollinators during sowing.
