INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

Quietly, billions of bees are being killed off across the U.S. threatening our crops and food. But a ban of one group of pesticides could save bees from extinction.

Since banning this poison in four European countries, bee populations have soared. But chemical companies are lobbying hard to keep their killer pesticide on the market in the U.S. Our best chance to save our bees is a massive national outcry now for a U.S. ban.

Let’s build a giant global buzz calling for these dangerous chemicals to be outlawed until and unless they are proved to be safe.
