E.U. Expected to Vote on Pesticide Ban after Major Scientific Review

Big news! These pesticides include these brand names:

  • Imidacloprid
  • Thiamethoxam
  • Clothianidin
  • Acetamiprid
  • Thiacloprid
  • Dinotefuran
  • Nitenpyram


In a long-awaited decision, the European Union today voted to ban the use of three controversial neonicotinoid insecticides on all crops grown outdoors.

As a result, all outdoor uses of the three neonicotinoids of greatest concern for bee health – clothianidin, imidacloprid and thiametheoxam – will be banned outright, with use of the chemical permitted inside permanent greenhouses only. The ban is binding in all member states, and it will enter into force by the end of 2018, the European Commission said in a statement.
