7 years ago I spoke out in favor of a ban on neonicotinoids. These are cumulative poisons without thresholds that contaminate entire areas of the country and, moreover, are only slowly degraded. It's a nearly perfect script for insect extermination. This also means that if neonicotinoids are banned, insect decline will not cease immediately, as it will take years for these substances to be removed from the environment. Therefore, we do not have much time left to turn the page. Any hesitation now can lead to the complete collapse of the ecosystem.
