Home and garden pesticides containing neonicotinoids

posted in: Bees | 0

Neonicotinoid based pesticides have been implicated in the alarming deaths of bees and other pollinators that are so crucial to pollination and biodiversity in the UK as a whole. It is not just agricultural products that they are used in but also a number of products aimed at the domestic home and garden market.

This site lists the products currently approved for use in the UK likely to be available to purchase by the general public.  They include common house plant insecticides and rose bug killers, and they include our ‘friends’ Thiacloprid, Methiocarb and Acetamiprid.
