Canada retricts popular pesticide but stops short of ban

Ottawa (AFP) May 19, 2021
Canada’s health agency on Wednesday announced restrictions on the use of popular pesticide imidacloprid, but stopped short of banning this and two others shown to harm insects and birds. Imidacloprid belongs to a class of chemicals called neonicotinoids that are blamed for the collapse of bee colonies worldwide and suspected of disrupting memory and flight abilities of insects and birds.
