Numerous studies demonstrate that neonicotinoids pose a threat to bee populations in particular. Scientists recognize that other factors such as disease and lack of flowers also contribute to the decline, and that banning these products alone will not likely save the bees. Research does show, however, that these insecticides have negative impacts and that restricting their use would benefit pollinators.
