"If the government approves Syngenta's kneejerk and cynical application then the public are bound to question whether ministers are too close to the agrochemical companies and too distant from the ecology that feeds us.".

Deadly toxins and bees don't mix...we need the bees for pollination of so many of our food, so killing the bees with pesticides makes little sense.

Who kills bee's with insecticides? It's not the farmers. Bee's in the U.S. have what is called colony collapse disorder, it is caused by a mite, the mite is a carrier for a virus that kills the bees.

My answer to you Kyle, >
“It’s great news that the huge swarm of protest killed off Syngenta’s attempts to try and keep their bee-killing poisons in Britain’s fields," Bert Wander, Avaaz campaigner, commented in a press release Friday.

The company's neonicotinoid seed treatments were suspended for two years by the European Union in late 2013 due to research linking it to be a serious harm to the bees. Brussels banned the use of the world’s most widely used insecticide in open flowering crops such as oilseed rape, although there are opinions within the farming industry the assertions of its harm are ill-founded.

Only recently, after a four-year assessment, scientists have also concluded that neurotoxic pesticides blamed for the decline of honeybees is also harming butterflies, worms, fish, and birds.
