Ban this Pesticide Now!


     In the next week the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) will make a decision on the future use of the neonicotinoid pesticide Clothianidin.  The use of this chemical killer has been suspended and banned in many European countries because of the devastating effects on the bee populations.  This spring a number of commercial beekeepers in Canada and the United States have experienced devastating losses during the spraying of the systemic neonicotinoid pesticides (Canadian Beekeepers meet with government officials after devastating effects of neonicotinoid pesticides ).  If you value native bees, honey bees, and the future of planet Earth please let the EPA know how you feel.  Go to The Centre for Food Safety and sign the petition to suspend the use of the neonicotinoid pesticide Clothianidin.  To see further dire effects of the neonicotinoid pesticides on the health of the planet go to Pesticides and Bees.
