NFU supports using banned bee killing pesticide

Only a few weeks into Brexit and the UK wants to ditch the ban on neonicotinoid pesticides which are known to kill bees. The NFU supports the use on this devastating chemical on sugar beet crops. They have been trying push a new green image, yet this shows how their thinking is stuck in the past.

We must wake up and demand a clean, eco friendly food system that does not reply on soaking crops in chemicals that are known to destroy the environment.  We need large scale fundamental change about the way food is produced and how it affects the environment. If we do nothing, then rapid climate breakdown will happen very quickly.

PLEASE click the image to sign the petition, write to your MP and send a Tweet. Even if you don’t normally do this sort of thing please help save bees.

Fighting to save bees

Beyer, the maker of neonicotinoid pesticides that have killed vast numbers of bees is taking the EU to court over the ban on it’s use. They obviously stand to lose a lot of money selling a poison that kills bees. How utterly cynical, irresponsible and downright stupid can they be?

We need to fight back because we rely on bees to pollinate plants that feed us. Without bees we are in a lot of trouble but Beyer does not care about that as long as they make a profit. It is time to stop them, please sign this petition.

There are other things we can do to help bees like not mowing all of the lawn. Leave some patches untouched to make nectar bars.

See this page for shrubs, bush fruits and trees that are good for bees.
