Neonicotinoid chemicals — now the most commonly used insecticides on earth — have lethal effects on birds, bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. American Bird Conservancy and a coalition of conservation organizations, beekeepers, scientists, and business leaders are asking the EPA to suspend the four most toxic neonicotinoids until a comprehensive study of their effects on wildlife and people is completed.
Please take action and urge your U.S. Representative to cosponsor the Saving America’s Pollinators Act of 2015. The bill requires EPA to suspend the registration of neonicotinoid insecticides pending thorough review of the adverse effects on birds, bees, butterflies, bats and other beneficial organisms.
Tell Congress that it’s time for the EPA to get serious about neonicotinoid pesticides!
