Stop the authorisation and use of pesticides believed to kill bees in the UK.
Stop the emergency authorisation of the use of a bee-killing pesticide - a product containing neonicotinoid thiamethoxam - on sugar beet and other crops in the UK.
The government must stop the use of neonicotinoids in the UK due to the significant environmental risks they pose for bees and other species of insects - particularly pollinators. Insects perform vital roles in the pollination of crops & wildflowers, and nutrient recycling, but have suffered drastic declines. Evidence suggests at least 50% of insects have been lost since 1970, and 41% of insect species are now 'threatened with extinction'. Use of neonicotinoids will only exacerbate this situation.
