Support the ‘Save America’s Pollinators Act' to Suspend the Use of Neonicotinoid Pesticides

A new act calls for the suspension of the bee-harming pesticides classified as “neonics” until a full review demonstrates they aren't harmful to bees.

A press release from Pesticide Action Network North America

Good news! Representatives John Conyers (D-MI) and Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) stepped up for bees. The "Save America's Pollinators Act" requires EPA to pull bee-toxic neonicotinoid pesticides from the market until their safety is proven.

This is the fighting chance our honey bees need.

Support is critical. Scientists tell us that "neonics" are a key contributing factor to dramatic bee die-offs. Yet these insecticides continue to be widely used, and EPA says it won't take action until after 2018. It's time for Congress to get in the ring! Urge your Representative to support this bill today
