Recent European Initiatives for Pesticide Safety

Germany seems to be on course to follow France and ban neo-nicotinoids to save honeybee colonies. Read about it at the following link:

I request neonicotinoids experts in India to please comment on this matter. Are our honeybees safe? I checked an imidaclopid packing leaflet today. It carries no warning related to avoiding exposure to pollinators. CCD will wreck havoc with countless marginal farmers and the landless as well. Honeybees are are most precious bio-diversity resources. Foreign companies which own neonicotinoid patents should underwrite the risks of their products in India. 

Please voice your powerful opinion today.
