Take Action: Demand a Ban on Bee-killing Pesticides
Neonicotinoid pesticides are poisoning bees, butterflies and other pollinators across the United States, yet the Environmental Protection Agency continues to allow their use on hundreds of millions of acres. This is profoundly irresponsible and undermines the agency's mission. It's also unnecessary: Safer alternatives exist and can be used right now.
With each pollinator lost and every stream or meadow made unlivable, these toxic pesticides are destroying ecosystems. But instead of following the science and the European Union's lead by banning neonics, the agency has proposed to keep them on the market, with only minor restrictions on their use.
Tell the EPA that token measures won't save our bees. The agency must ban neonicotinoids outright.
