Scientific studies have linked the use of pesticides containing the chemical thiamethoxam to the falling numbers of honeybees, wild bees and other animals which pollinate plants.
Insects play a vital role in the food chain – with around a third of the food we eat relying on pollination mainly by bees.
“The wildlife we love is in decline, even the buzzing of bees in our farmlands and countryside is becoming quieter every year.“
– RSPB senior policy officer Stephanie Morren
