🐝 🐝 Help Save Our Bees 🐝 🐝
Bees need our help once again. For the third year in a row, the UK government has authorised the use of a banned bee-killing pesticide on sugar beet crops in England.
This shocking decision:
❌ Ignores the advice of the Government’s own pesticide experts
❌ Undermines legally-binding commitments to restore nature in the Environment Act
❌ Goes against the Government’s pledge to halve the environmental harms of pesticides by 2030
These pesticides are banned for a reason. Neonics pose a significant environmental risk to bees and other pollinators.
Just one 1 teaspoon of thiamethoxam can kill 1.25 BILLION bees. We can’t let this pesticide be used again.
If you go to your own Wildlife Trust site you should find a link with the prepared letter to email off to your MP asking them to attend the debate about the future of banned pesticides on Wednesday 1st February.
