A groundbreaking scientific study has just found the strongest evidence yet, that neonicotinoid pesticides can harm honeybees. This is about bees, but it’s also about us. If we keep harming bees, we risk our food supplies. It’s estimated that a third of our food is dependent on bees.
The EU currently have a temporary ban on neonicotinoids. With the UK in the process of exiting the EU, we need to act now to make sure the government keeps this harmful pesticide well away from our bees.
