Spain emergency OKs two insecticides

Spain has granted exceptional use authorisation for Bayer CropScience's neonicotinoid insecticide, thiacloprid, and the Syngenta pyrethroid insecticide, tefluthrin, as a maize seed treatment. The approvals are for the control of wireworms (Agriotes spp) and are valid until February 20th 2014. Beekeeper groups have petitioned the government against the registrations, linking the active ingredients with other insecticides that have been implicated by the EU authorities in impacting bee health (Agrow No 656, p 6).
