Ban the pesticides that are killing bees

British bees are in danger! There’s mounting evidence that some pesticides are killing bees. But the environment minister recently refused to support a European vote to stop the pesticides being used. Now we’ve got just a few weeks to change the minister’s mind before he votes again.

Bees and other insects pollinate about three quarters of our food, so it’s incredibly important to protect them. Countries across Europe including France and Italy have looked at the mounting scientific evidence and already started banning these harmful pesticides. But our government are dragging their heels.
