Italy Drops Bayer's Neonicotinoids

Department: Business

Italy is now the fourth European country after Germany, Slovenia, and France to suspend use of Bayer CropScience's neonicotinoid pesticides. Italian regulators say they are setting up a monitoring program to evaluate a suspected connection between bee deaths and the pesticides thiamethoxan, clothianidin, and imidacloprid. Imidacloprid alone brought in more than $800 million in sales last year and is Bayer CropScience's best-selling pesticide.
