Dear State Leaders,
Nearly ¼ of native bee species are imperiled. Honeybee colonies throughout the country are collapsing. Everything in nature is connected, and bee die-offs are no exception. Our natural world needs bees, and so do we.
Scientists point to a class of pesticides called “neonics” as one of the causes of bee die-offs. To help save the bees, we’re working to pass a bill that stops the sale to the general public of neonics and the use of bee-killing pesticides in sensitive areas like schools. Let’s ban bee-killing neonics statewide.
