Call on the EPA to ban bee-killing pesticides

Docket #EPA-HQ-OPP-2008-0844-1608

Millions of bees are dying off, with alarming consequences for our food supply. We rely on bees to pollinate 71 of the 100 crops that provide 90 percent of the world's food supply.

Researchers point to neonicotinoids as a leading cause of colony collapse. Neonicotinoids attack bees' central nervous system, causing brain damage, paralysis and death. I urge you to protect bees by banning the worst uses of all neonicotinoids, including all yard, garden and landscaping uses of neonicotinoids and the use of neonicotinoid-coated seeds in any setting.
