Neonicotinoids are neurotoxic systemic insecticides used in plant protection worldwide. Unfortunately, application of neonicotinoids affects both beneficial and target insects indiscriminately. Being water soluble and persistent, these pesticides are capable of disrupting both food chains and biogeochemical cycles. This review focuses on the biodegradation of neonicotinoids in soil and water systems by the bacterial community. Several bacterial strains have been isolated and identified as…

An overview of neonicotinoids: biotransformation and biodegradation by microbiological processes
TLDR
The most recent microbial biodegradation and bioremediation processes for neonicotinoids, which employ isolated microorganisms (bacteria and fungi), consortiums of microorganisms, and different types of soils, biobeds, and biomixtures are discussed.
Microbial Technologies Employed for Biodegradation of Neonicotinoids in the Agroecosystem
TLDR
This review highlights the implementation of innovative tools, databases, multi-omics strategies and immobilization techniques of microbial cells to detect and degrade neonicotinoids in the environment.
Insights Into the Microbial Degradation and Biochemical Mechanisms of Neonicotinoids
TLDR
The microbial degradation pathways of neonicotinoid-degrading microbes and the fate of several metabolites have been investigated in the literature and the potentials for the bioremediation of contaminated sites were discussed.
Microbial Biotransformation of Neonicotinoid Insecticides in Soil – A Review
TLDR
The name neonicotinoids are derived from nicotine and they are relatively new to market compared to other already established organochlorines, organophosphates, carbamates and synthetic pyrethroids insecticides.
Microbial degradation of recalcitrant pesticides: a review
TLDR
The latest advances in microbial degradation of recalcitrant pesticides using microorganisms isolated in contaminated sites appears promising and can be manipulated by applying techniques such as bioattenuation, bioaugmentation and biostimulation.
Exhaustion of pentachlorophenol in soil microcosms with three Pseudomonas species as detoxification agents.
TLDR
Three strains of Pseudomonas showed good capability to tolerate and degrade PCP so that they could be successfully used in synergistic effect to treat PCP polluted soils.

Bioremediation and Phytoremediation of Pesticides: Recent Advances
TLDR
This review describes the most recent progress in biotechnological approaches for enhancing the capability of microorganisms and plants through the characterization and transfer of pesticide-degrading genes, induction of catabolic pathways, and display of cell surface enzymes.
REVIEW: An overview of the environmental risks posed by neonicotinoid insecticides
TLDR
Major knowledge gaps remain, but current use of neonicotinoids is likely to be impacting on a broad range of non-target taxa including pollinators and soil and aquatic invertebrates and hence threatens a range of ecosystem services.
Environmental fate and exposure; neonicotinoids and fipronil
TLDR
There is strong evidence that soils, waterways, and plants in agricultural environments and neighboring areas are contaminated with variable levels of neonicotinoids or fipronil mixtures and their metabolites, and this provides multiple routes for chronic exposure of nontarget animals.
Conclusions of the Worldwide Integrated Assessment on the risks of neonicotinoids and fipronil to biodiversity and ecosystem functioning
TLDR
The present scale of use of fipronil and neonicotinoid has resulted in widespread contamination of agricultural soils, freshwater resources, wetlands, non-target vegetation and estuarine and coastal marine systems, which means that many organisms inhabiting these habitats are being repeatedly and chronically exposed to these compounds.

TLDR
The present study will help to explain the fate of TMX in the environment and its microbial degradation mechanism, as well as to facilitate future investigations of the mechanism through which TMX enhances plant vigor.
Effects of Imidacloprid on the Biodiversity of Soil Microbes in Selected Soils of Malaysia
Imidacloprid is a systemic nicotinic compound with potent insecticidal activity against a wide range of pests. Although this pesticide is considered as relatively low toxic, but still there is great
Biodegradation of the neonicotinoid insecticide thiamethoxam by the nitrogen-fixing and plant-growth-promoting rhizobacterium Ensifer adhaerens strain TMX-23
TLDR
The nitrogen-fixing and plant-growth-promoting rhizobacterium E. adhaerens TMX-23, which is able to degrade THIA, has the potential for bioaugmentation as well as to promote growth of field crops in THIA-contaminated soil.
