Tell CA Officials: Toxic Neonic Pesticides Are Harming Us.

Neonics are neurotoxic insecticides used almost everywhere, including lawns and gardens across the country.

These dangerous pesticides are responsible for killing the bees and other pollinators we depend on to grow our food. They also often appear in the water we drink, the food we eat, and even in our own bodies.

Neonics are neurotoxic insecticides used almost everywhere, including our lawns and gardens.

These pesticides are responsible for killing massive numbers of bees and other pollinators. We depend on pollinators to grow our food, so fewer pollinators could mean increased food prices, reduced access to healthier foods, and food scarcity that will hit low-income families especially hard.

Even worse, these pesticides are commonly found in our bodies — likely because of food and water contamination and contact with treated land. Research has linked exposure to neonics in the womb or early in life with developmental defects, heart deformations, muscle tremors, and memory loss.

Send an urgent message to your California state lawmakers urging them to pass Assembly Bill 2146, critical legislation that would safeguard pollinators, waterways, people, and the future of our food supply by banning unnecessary and harmful lawn and garden neonic uses.
