Tell the EPA: Ban the worst uses of toxic neonicotinoids

Docket #EPA-HQ-OPP-2021-0575-0001

We, the undersigned, ask that the Environmental Protection Agency ban the pretreatment of seeds with and the consumer sale of clothianidin, imidacloprid and thiamethoxam. These pesticides are collectively the three most used neonicotinoids and pose a huge threat to bees and the global food supply.

Millions of bees are dying every year, and scientists point to neonicotinoids as a leading cause of this mass die-off. This is devastating not just for bees, but also for our global food supply. We rely on bees to pollinate 71 of the 100 crops that provide 90% of the world's food.
