and the relation with neonicotinoid pesticides.

Neonicotinoids are a relatively new class of insecticides that share a common mode of action that affect the central nervous system of insects, resulting in paralysis and death. They include imidacloprid, acetamiprid, clothianidin, dinotefuran, nithiazine, thiacloprid and thiamethoxam.



This video is being streamed from the Aeron Vale Allotments Trust web server. It was originally created and produced by the narrator Sharilyn Wood Stalling. Here she talks in depth about the denied (by pharmaceutical companies like Bayer) connection between deadly neonicotinoids and the alarming reduction in the number of honey bees in the countries that still use these pesticides.
