Science must be honest.   The EU ban must be used to provide real evidence about the the effect of neonicotinoids on crops, bees and the environment .  This  site can be used by DARG  to keep members up to date.

There is some very interesting information on bee and environmental health in a new  magazine BEENOW 2015.  

This is published by Bayer so it might be considered propaganda for the agri-chemical industry.  However it is very well presented,  wide ranging and very detailed about the condition of bee species, and honeybees in particular, worldwide. Varroa articles are very interesting.
