Remove Bee-Killing 'Pesticides' From Shops

Reason for signing

  • It's very difficult to find the "active ingredient" on the bottle in the shop, so consumer choice doesn't work at all well. So a Ban is what's needed - there's some good evidence that these compounds are dangerous to bees, and although not conclusive, better safe than sorry (the "Precautionary principle") until the decline in the bee populations is much better understood.
