Germany Bans Chemicals Linked to Honeybee Deaths.

Posted on May 31, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

The German Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL) has banned a family of pesticides blamed for the death of millions of honeybees.  BVL has suspended the registration for eight pesticide seed treatment products used in rapeseed oil and sweet corn.  The move followed reports from German beekeepers of massive bee die-off following application of Bayer’s clothianidin to the seeds of sweet corn planted a long the Rhine this spring.  (The guardian)
