Petition text

Don’t make any exceptions - keep the ban on bee-killing pesticides in place across the UK.

Why is this important?

Bees are in danger again. The government could give the go-ahead to seeds treated with bee-killing pesticides being planted next spring. All despite a ban on these dangerous pesticides - called neonicotinoids- which destroy bees’ central nervous system and can be lethal.

The decision will be made in a matter of weeks. France has already lifted the ban on these dangerous chemicals; we cannot allow our government to follow suit. We have just enough time to prove to the government that we expect them to protect our bees - and keep the ban in place, no exceptions.

Bees play a critical role in our environment, pollinating 75% of the world’s crops. Without them, we would be in deep trouble. Will you add your name now to keep the ban on these dangerous pesticides and protect our bees?

Will you chip in?
