Protecting the Pollinators
Protecting honey bees and wild pollinators from pesticides
Since 2006, honey bees and other pollinators in the U.S. and throughout the world have experienced ongoing and rapid population declines. The continuation of this crisis threatens the stability of ecosystems, the economy, and our food supply, as one in three bites of food are dependent on pollinator services
Take Action. Bee Protective
EPA’s decision to deny the petition recognizing that honey bees face “imminent hazard” and requesting the suspension of the pesticide clothianidin, linked to bee die-offs is a blow to beekeepers and over one million citizen petition signatures worldwide. This decision puts beekeepers, rural economies, and our food system at risk. EPA believes the bees are alright, but with hives still averaging losses over 30%, bees are crying out for help. With one in three bites of food reliant on honey bee pollination, it’s imperative that EPA act now! Tell EPA to suspend the use of the bee-killer clothianidin and protect pollinators.
