Bees and neonicotinoids

Despite claims that particular types of seed treatments (neonicotinoids) are harmful to bees, there is no evidence that neonicotinoids have harmed bees in New Zealand.

Neonicotinoids have been used safely across millions of hectares of crops worldwide. Many years of independent monitoring prove that when used properly, this effective crop protection technology does not damage the health of bee populations.
