Neonics are currently banned in the EU and are restricted to an extent in Canada.

This article reveals the alarming trend in US policy, of disregarding the work and suggested measures of environmental organizations. Certainly a major step backwards in terms of educating the population on the declining Bee population and the imminent danger that this decline will have on our food sources.
