What are "neonics"?

Neonics are neonicotinoids, a class of insecticides used by farmers to protect fruit, vegetables and crops from various insect pests such as aphids, wireworms, flea beetles and types of chewing and sucking insects.

Neonics can be sprayed on crops. They are often also applied as a seed treatment, which protects planted seeds and crops in the early stages of growth from various insects. Only small quantities of the insecticide are needed to coat the seed, which is then planted in the ground, reducing human and environmental exposure as well as exposure to non-target insects such as bees.

In addition, neonicotinoids are used for killing insects in homes, controlling fleas on pets, and protecting trees from invasive insects such as the Emerald Ash Borer.
