Pollen angels: The E.U.’s ban on bee-killing pesticides begins. Will it help?

argylesock says… Here in Europe our ban on neonics was bitterly fought. It was even opposed by our UK Secretary of State for Environment Food and Rural Affairs, Owen Paterson. Now it’s in force but as Heather Smith says in this article, it may be too weak and too brief to achieve much for the bees.

About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.
