Tell the EPA to Immediately Suspend Clothianidin: The Pesticide That's Killing Bees

Bees have been dying off in the U.S. at an alarming rate — nearly 30 percent of our bee population, per year, have been lost to so-called colony collapse since 2006.

Scientists have long thought that the pesticide clothianidin was at least partially to blame. But the EPA has repeatedly ignored scientists' warnings and Americans' urgings to ban its use, citing lack of evidence.

Now, a blockbuster study released  by Europe's leading food safety authority, EFSA, has for the first time labeled clothianidin as an "unacceptable" danger to bees.



The EFSA study could be a major breakthrough to convince the EPA to take emergency action, and suspend the use of clothianidin to stop the precipitous decline in global honeybee populations.
