Reverse government decision to allow the use of bee-killing pesticides!
If bees die, we die.
Bees are essential to the natural world and now we’ve left the EU, the UK government has decided to allow the use of EU-banned pesticide Neonicotinoid Thiamethoxam on crops. This pesticide is LETHAL to bees and other pollinators. Stop the use of Neonicotinoids on crops!
Neonicotinoids poisons the pollen, making it deadly to bees. Research suggests that the poison then moves up the food chain, killing birds as well. Neonicotinoids are banned in several countries due to links with bee deaths. Please ban the use of neonics on crops in the UK too!
