Remove Bee-Killing 'Pesticides' From Shops

Remove Bee-Killing 'Pesticides' From Shops

Refuse to sell any garden products that are known to be dangerous to pollinators, especially bees.

Why is this important?

Many agricultural chemicals are harmful to insect pollinators and other wildlife, but people typically think those intended for use in the garden are safe. However, many of these products contain ingredients that are known to be toxic to bees and other beneficial insects, as well as important soil bacteria. Safe alternatives are available and there is no need to use poisons in your garden.

We encourage you to create a 'Bee-Friendly Zone' in your garden, where pollinators can safely live and forage. See www.beefriendlyzone.org for more.
