TELL THE EPA: TAKE ACTION ON BEE-KILLING PESTICIDES!
Bees are dying at alarming rates worldwide – and because bees are responsible for roughly one in every three bites of food we eat, we’re all in trouble. That’s why we’re calling on the Environmental Protection Agency to act NOW to protect them.
A decade of research has made it clear that neonicotinoid pesticides are highly toxic to bees and are a contributing factor for the pollinators dying in record numbers. In 2016, the EPA finally confirmed this troubling fact. The agency even concluded that the use of neonics as a seed coating on soybean seeds – one of the major uses of neonics on crops today – provides little to no overall benefit to soybean production.
Tell the EPA to restrict all nonessential uses of neonics. We cannot stand by and watch pollinators die as the EPA completes its final assessment. You may use this form to submit EWG's pre-written comments or write your own in the box provided.
