Evidence that neonicotinoid pesticides are doing severe damage to ecological integrity and bee populations around the world is now “conclusive,” according to a review conducted by an international scientific task force.
The threat posed by these pesticides is on the same scale as that once posed by DDT, the researchers said.
Global devastation: As with many pesticides, neonicotinoids were initially promoted as a supposedly safer replacement for older pesticides. Even then, many scientists warned that the new insecticides could have a devastating ecological impact.
Neonicotinoids are known as “systemic insecticides” because they are sprayed onto seeds and then absorbed into every cell of the plant, making the whole organism poisonous for its entire lifetime.
