New Hampshire lawmakers on Tuesday will take up a proposal to ban most uses of pesticides that are toxic to bees. The House bill comes from second-term Nashua Democrat Catherine Sofikitis.
It would ban the use and sale in the state of insecticides and treated seeds that fall under four chemical classes: neonicotinoids (also known as neonics), sulfoxamines, butenolides and phenyl-pyrazoles.
