Tell the EPA: Ban the worst uses of bee-killing neonics
We, the undersigned, urge the Environmental Protection Agency to ban the worst uses of clothianidin, imidacloprid and thiamethoxam, the three most commonly used neonicotinoid pesticides. This includes both a ban on the consumer sale of these pesticides and the pre-treatment of seeds with them.
The EPA's biological evaluation of these neonicotinoids found that they are likely to adversely affect more than 1,000 endangered and threatened species, including vital pollinators. The further decimation of bees, butterflies and various other pollinators will have devastating consequences for our environment and global food supply.
