More pesticide studies are summarised in a report by Buglife, and some can be searched for on the internet by googling the references. The document can be a little slow to download, but you may access it here.

What are neonicotinoids and how do they work?
A useful supplementary read to these pesticide studies is this easy-read explanation about what neonicotinoids are, how they work, and the names of a number of neonicotinoid pesticide chemicals that can be found in household and agricultural pesticides and even in some garden fence treatments and composts.

Missing Bees
This is a broad introductory page about the areas we need to address to help our bees (including bumblebees, solitary bees and honey bees). By looking at the way we manage our landscapes, and by taking constructive action in our gardens, we can be a great help to bees and other pollinators, as well as insects generally.
