Toelichting (Engels) The aim of this study was to find out whether the use of neonicotinoid pesticides and their residues in surface waters, affects the distribution of, and number of individuals per, nontarget species in the Netherlands. And if significant differences in the distribution of, and number of individuals per species, were found, the aim was also to assess whether they are similar for all species studied, and whether this gives an indication as to the safety of neonicotinoid pesticides for non‐target species in general. The research question focused on in this project, is: Is there a correlation between the use of neonicotinoid pesticides, and their residues in soil and surface water, and the distribution of and number of individuals per non‐target species, including bumblebees, earthworms and ladybugs, in the Netherlands?
