"Through my beekeeping, I have been unable to neglect the topic of pesticides but also of wild bees, which is why I have been providing bees and pesticides for the Baden-Wrttemberg State Association since January 2016. The topic of pesticides and their effects in ecosystems is (m) one part of the work of the Federal Committee on Environmental Chemistry and Cotoxicology, which was founded in 2016 and whose second spokesman is I. It is also concerned with supporting the authorities for approvals or opinions from a conservation point of view, "said Sabine Holmgeirsson about her activities.
