Tell the EPA to stop allowing neonicotinoid pesticides to put our pollinators, food, and environmental health at risk! Right now, the Environmental Protection Agency is considering whether or not to allow the continued use of four toxic insecticides called neonicotinoids, or “neonics” for short -- the most widely used class of pesticides in the world. Hundreds of studies have found neonics to be harmful to wild and managed bees, and associated with the decline in bird populations.
The EPA wants to know what the public thinks about neonicotinoids, and the deadline has just been extended to April 21. Submit a comment now to defend the pollinators which support our food supply, and maintain a healthy, safe environment that can sustain current and future generations.
Pollinators help produce one-third of the world’s food crops, and this class of toxic pesticide causes serious harm to the central nervous systems of bees, other insects and wildlife. If neonics are not discontinued soon, our food supply could be in jeopardy. Enough already! It is time to end the destructive, irresponsible use of neonicotinoids.
Adding your personal comments will help show decision-makers that you are serious enough to put some time into stopping neonics, and that these concerns will not go away once the comment period closes. Thank you!
