Greenpeace Calls for EU Ban on Seven Pesticides Due to Bee Risk

Greenpeace called on European Union policy makers to ban pesticides including crop-protection chemicals from Bayer AG, Syngenta AG and BASF SE, saying the products play a role in honeybee deaths.

The environmental campaign group said it identified seven “priority bee-killer” pesticides that should be banned due to high toxicity and the impact they have on bees, according to an e-mailed statement today.
