This is absolutely outrageous. While there is no single confirmed cause, there has plenty of research done to suggest that neonicotinoids are at least contributing to CCD. Just two years ago the EU banned their use due to the harm they caused bees. Now they want to reinstate them to tackle another pest when it may already be too late?

The temporary relaxation of the ban will cover an area of about 30,000 hectares.

That's 115.8 square miles: about the size of Omaha City, Nebraska - or the Maldives.
