The European Commission has proposed a restriction on the use of a further pesticide, fipronil ((RS)-5-amino-1-[2,6-dichloro-4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]-4-(trifluoromethylsulfinyl)-1H-pyrazole-3-carbonitrile) as it is considered to be a risk to honey bees. This proposal has been agreed by Member State experts from the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health.
This is a further measure to try and stem the decline in European bee populations.
