Save the Bees Sunday!

Send a Message to the EPA NOW!
There has been research pointing to the pesticide clothianidin as not only a cause of death among the world's honey bee population but also as a possible factor or even the cause of Colony Collapse Disorder. Bayer's clothianidin and other neonicotinoid pesticides are in widespread use right now. The EPA is attempting to put off further review of clothianidin until 2018. Such a wait could have a devastating effect on both our honey bee population and our planet's ability to produce crops. The time allotted to comment on the EPA's decision ends tomorrow.

CLICK HERE to send a letter to the EPA telling them to review clothianidin and other neonicotinoid pesticides NOW before it is too late for the bees and for us all.
