Tell the EPA to protect the bees
The science is clear. Neonicotinoids are a major contributor to bee die-offs, as well as health defects in fish, deer and birds. Yet these pesticides are still the most widely used class of pesticides in the world. If we want to protect our precious pollinators and the ecosystems and foods that rely on them, we have to use pesticides more responsibly. I urge the agency to ban the sale of neonics to consumers and to regulate neonic-coated seeds, just as you would any other pesticide.
