Make Proposed Ban on Bee-Harming Pesticides a Reality

Target: His Excellency Donald Tusk, President of the European Council

Goal: Support a total ban on neonicotinoids to protect the bee population.

The European Union may permanently ban dangerous pesticides, thanks to a report from the European Food Safety Authority showing that they are the chief threat to the country’s bee population. Unfortunately, despite overwhelming evidence, a push to ban neonicotinoids and a 2017 draft, pesticide companies such as Syngenta are resisting, reluctant to lose their business. The chemicals are still legal to use in closed greenhouses, which still run the risk of leakage and contamination of the outside world.

We cannot risk allowing the bee populations to die off. Bees are one of the most vital components of the overall ecosystem; they are pollinators, which give life to plants and provide honey as a sustenance for certain wild animals. The bee population has been at risk for years now, with numbers slowly dropping day by day, and we could be looking at a total extinction in a matter of years if drastic measures are not taken.

This proposed ban must be implemented as soon as possible. We cannot continue to risk the bee population, and by extension our fragile ecosystem. Sign this petition to support a full ban on any use of neonicotinoids.


Dear President Tusk,

Neonicotinoid pesticides are the chief threat to the European bee population, as proven by extensive research and a report from the European Food Safety Authority. These pesticides contaminate the water and soil in which wildflowers grow, leading to their consumption by bees. A ban was drafted in 2017 but has yet to be put in place. Pesticide businesses are resistant to allow the change, and the chemicals are still legal to use in greenhouses.

You must throw your full support into a total ban of neonicotinoids. Bees are vital to the overall ecosystem, and their loss could spell the end of many species of plants as well as animals who primarily feed on honey. The use of pesticides is dangerous for all life forms, and there are many safer ways to protect crops. Support and implement a ban on these chemicals as soon as possible.

  1. Bee’s are essential. They help pollinate plants that give us food to eat! There’s already been a major decline in the bee population, we must do more, we must do the right thing!

    Save all of us from the insects, animals, children to adults… This crap is turning up in baby formula and in much of our food! STOP poisoning us.
