Honey Bee pollinating flowers.

A new Neonic Report by 38 degrees suggests that the use of neonicotinoid pesticides in the UK is not worth the risk of harm to our pollinators. The request for us to pass this information on to our MP’s  is part of their broader campaign to protect bees and other pollinating insects from pesticides (Click here for Bee Campaign Link).  C.Paxton image and copyright.

People concerned about the rapid decline in our honey bees will be interested to know that there is new ammunition against neonicotinoid pesticide use in Britain in the form of a report from 38 Degrees called Oilseed Rape and Neonicotinoids Emergency Derogations: an Evidence-based Review .

The report argues that the moratorium on use of these harmful pesticides should not be lifted.
