Widespread use of highly bee-toxic neonic pesticides are not only putting our bees and the food systems they support in critical danger, but scientific research shows that they harm other wildlife as well and increase the risk of developmental or neurological damage in infants and young people.
The EPA has has begun to acknowledge that it previously underestimated the serious risks neurotoxic neonic pesticides pose to human health, but its new proposal to restrict their use falls far short.
With our important pollinators and our very health on the line, we need bold sweeping action to stay healthy and safe.
Submit an official public comment before the 6/18 deadline demanding EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler enact stronger protections against rampant neonic use.
Tell Trump’s EPA Administrator, Andrew Wheeler, to crack down on the use of toxic neonic pesticides and protect our pollinating bees, birds, and our health.
EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler
Protect our pollinators and our health by doing more to restrict neonics
