A new study affirmed that neonicotinoid pesticides - also known as "neonics" which are chemically related to nicotine - harm both honey bees and wild bees, as reported by BBC. Researchers found that the chemical exposure decreased the survival of honey bee hives during winter, while bumblebees and solitary bees produced fewer queens.
Over the years, studies continually find that neonicotinoid pesticides are associated with the death of bees and their slow reproduction.
