EU extends bee monitoring project

A programme to monitor honeybee colony losses in 17 EU member states has been extended until September 20th. The European Commission accepted the move after the countries said that they would not be able to complete the surveys by the original end date of June 30th. The project aims to gather reliable data on bee mortality and its possible causes. It was initiated in 2011 after studies found that surveillance systems in member states were weak (Agrow No 618, p 10). Pesticides are among many factors considered to impact bees and the Commission has already restricted use of some insecticides because of that (Agrow No 665, p 6).
