The Use Of Pesticides On Bee-Attracting Plants Needs To Stop Altogether- Susan Kegley, Phd

 
Foto: NATIONAL POLLINATOR WEEK IS JUNE 16 - 22, 2014. Take action to help SAVE THE BEES & ALL POLLINATORS.

Home Depot, Lowe’s Home Improvement and Orchard Supply Hardware are marketing and selling plants as “bee-friendly” when, in fact, many of them are bee-killing. Neonicotinoids are systemic insecticides applied as seed treatments, and are taken up by the roots and distributed through the entire plant. Neonics harm bees even at very low levels. Stop buying plants from these stores until they remove neonic-treated plants from their nurseries. How can you be assured that you’re growing plants that are truly good for the bees and other pollinators? Buy certified organic plants or grow your own plants from certified organic seeds. SAVE THE BEES.
