Tell Biden’s EPA: For the Future of Our Food Supply, Ban Bee-killing Uses of Neonics!

Bees and other pollinators are dying at an alarming rate from a deluge of toxic pesticides called neonics, pushed by agrochemical giants like Bayer.

We depend on bees and other pollinators for one out of every three bites of food we eat. Simply put, fewer bees = less food. That could mean increasing food costs, reduced access to healthier foods, and food scarcity that will hit low-income communities and communities of color especially hard. Enough is enough.

We have just over a year before the EPA completes its current hazard review of neonic pesticides, and then it won't be required to review these bee-toxic chemicals again for another fifteen years.

Bees can’t wait: We need to ratchet up the pressure on Biden's EPA to ban bee-killing uses of neonics and put pollinators and people ahead of industry profits:
