    Europe's top court rules in favor of bees banning three insecticides

    In April EU governments agreed to ban all use of three neo-nicotinoids outdoors. Seeds treated with them can still be used in greenhouses.

    The EU's top court has backed an almost complete EU-wide ban on the use of three insecticides, which studies have linked to declining bee populations. Chemicals giants Bayer and Syngenta had gone to the European Court of Justice (ECJ) hoping to get the restrictions on neo-nicotinoids overturned.
