We need to take the declining bee populations very seriously. Kudos to the government of France for taking steps to protect these very important pollinators!

I am surprised that Switzerland would use or sell the product but France is very progressive on green issues.

Good for FRANCE! I am wondering WHEN the US will ban neonicotinoids and so may other bad things harming life and Mother Earth. I email my political leaders often on this issue!
