More Neonicotinoid Research

New research published in Science looked at the effects of neonicotinoid-treated crops on three bee species (honey bees, Bombus terrestris and Osmia bicornis) in Hungary, Germany, and the United Kingdom. The research shows further links to neonicotinoid pesticides and reduced reproduction in bees, particularly wild bees.

About Murtagh's Meadow

As an ecologist I have always had an interest in nature. I love gardening and would spend all day outdoors if I could. I also enjoy taking photographs and writing. I live in the west of Ireland with my young family.
