The EPA recently denied a March 20, 2012 Petition to suspend the use of clothianidin, which belongs to a group of pesticides known as Neonicotinoids. Several European countries have banned these pesticides due to Scientific studies that show a connection to their use and honey-bee colony collapse disorder..
