14 September 2016 Sulfoxaflor and flupyradifurone: neonics or not? How pesticide industry tricks regulators...

This factsheet highlights how Dow and Bayer, the producers of sulfoxaflor and flupyradifurone have been twisting science and inventing their own rules to have sulfoxaflor and flupyradifurone not included in the neonicotinoids family. A way to through sand at the eyes of regulators.

Bees & Pesticides

Essential to the production of key EU food crops, yet in sudden decline. What links pesticides and mass bee deaths occurring globally?

Endosulfan is one of the world’s worst pesticides and has devastating impacts on human health and the global environment.
