Clive Efford - A Strong Voice for Eltham and Plumstead

help the bees


bee.jpgThe Government has lifted the EU ban on neonicotinoid pesticides, ignoring scientific research which has linked the pesticides to huge losses in the UK's bee population. 

By lifting the ban, the government is caving in to short-term commercial pressures from the NFU and pesticide manufacturers at the expense of the bee population in the UK and therefore the future of British farming.

Sign here to demand that the Government protect our bees by reinstating the ban immediately.

bees are essential to the ecosystem,

we are dependent on their welfare.

I am a keen gardener. I do not use any shop bought insecticides, pesticides etc. I grow flowers especially for the bees. For small gardens the best pesticides are thumb and forefinger or a pair of scissors. I am totally against the concreting over of gardens for parking. We need wild spots and to let them overgrow for nesting birds and other animals. We need to let things balance themselves instead of having so much control. You can extrapolate from this to all sorts of other areas in this increasingly audited country.
