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.

The loss of the bees and other insects will lead to the loss of birds and other wildlife. To the government: please do not ignore the facts about the harmful effects of the nicotinoids, backed by research and public opinion.

So glad to hear you are supporting this campaign against lifting the ban on the use of these pesticides which will kill off the bees in the UK.
