LONDON, UK: Scores of worried beekeepers, and a brace of fashionistas, have gathered outside Britain’s Parliament in a bid to convince the government to back a ban on pesticides that have been blamed for a worrying drop in bee populations. The demonstrators said they hope to influence Britain’s vote next week on a proposed European Union ban on some pesticides. Researcher Robert Mitton said, there has been a ‘rapid decline’ in bee population and diversity since the pesticides came into use in the 1990s.
