Ask your MP to back the ban on bee-harming pesticides

Right now, 3 neonicotinoid pesticides (neonics) are banned in the UK and other European countries after they were found to pose a risk to bees. 

But the ban isn't permanent and is under constant attack from pesticide firms and the National Farmers' Union (NFU).

Decisions will be made soon on whether to make the ban permanent, and to extend it to all crops.

Together we must make sure the ban stays for the sake of our bees, and stop it from being scrapped altogether from Brexit.

To protect our precious bees the UK government must back a permanent and comprehensive ban on neonics.

Three years ago the use of some neonics was restricted across Europe because they were found to pose a "high acute risk" to honeybees.

The scientific evidence for the threat to all bee species is overwhelming, including the world's largest ever field trial showing harm honeybees and wildbees face from neonics. And now they're implicated in the decline of butterflies and birds too.
