Scottish Wildlife Trust action to “Help Save Our Bees”

comment : Off

act now to save our beesThe EU is currently reviewing a two-year ban introduced in December 2013 restricting the use of three types of neonicotinoid insecticides due to the “high acute risks” to bees.

There is a huge body of evidence which shows that neonicotinoid insecticides are harmful to pollinators and other wildlife. The Scottish Wildlife Trust wants the Scottish Government to permanently ban the use of three types of neonicotinoids on all outdoor crops in Scotland to ensure that pollinators and other wildlife are permanently protected from these damaging insecticides.

The Scottish Wildlife Trust has produced a template which you can download, modify and send to your MSP (assuming you live in Scotland).

You can find the template (and other information) here.
