From December 19, only indoor facilities can use pesticides containing neonicotinoids, which are considered risky to household bees and other pollinators, says MTI.
The use of crop protection products, which are considered to be dangerous, of bees, including imidacloprid, clotianidine and thiamethoxone, were restricted in 2013 by the European Commission in 2013 and later this year, further restrictions on the use of active substances were introduced and the National Food Chain Security Agency (Nébih) powers.
The products containing one of the three active substances can be discarded after 19 December 2018 in a closed production facility, ie, in a glass house and to date, seeds treated as autumn flakes. After December 19, plants grown from processed seeds and greenhouses, including seedlings, shall be forbidden to come out.
Strengthening affects various pesticides. The marketing and use license for four products was withdrawn and the permission for 21 products was canceled. A detailed list of relevant preparations is available on the Nébih website.
The European Commission has previously reported that 10 species of pollinator species are on the verge of extinction and one-third of the bee and butterfly species are affected by the decline in population. Pollination is a vital natural process in which the insects play the main role, including bees and moths, butterflies and butterflies, some insects and other flying insects. An important part of the annual agricultural production of the European Union accounts for approximately € 15 billion (4821 billion tons), attributable directly to the performance of the pollinator.
The bee mortality rate and the weight of the problem in the summer months are explained in more detail in the mass killings of the Somogy District.
