Bees may become #addicted to nicotine-like pesticides

A study carried out by scientists from Newcastle University and published in the journal Nature has found that bees prefer foods containing neonicotinoids pesticides and may get addicted in the same way humans get hooked on cigarettes.

The research supported a second study also published in Nature, which suggests that neonicotinoids harm wild bee populations.
