Neonicotinoids are killing honeybees – sign our petition today

Lend your voice to our campaign and sign our petition calling on Hilary Benn, the UK’s Secretary of State for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs to ban neonicitinoid pesticides with immediate effect.

These pesticides have been shown to kill honeybees and are thought to be a contributory factor in the recent dramatic increase in honeybee deaths.

Neonicotinoids have already been withdrawn in France, Germany, Italy and Slovenia. The Soil Association believes that there is already enough evidence to justify an urgent ban in the UK today.
