25 Jun Bee die-offs are an emergency.
In March, PAN and Beyond Pesticides joined partners and beekeepers from around the country in filing a legal petition with EPA, calling on the agency to make use of its emergency powers to protect bees from Bayer’s pesticide clothianidin. Sources tell us that in the next two weeks, EPA will decide whether or not bees dying off at unprecedented rates constitutes an “imminent hazard.”
Since the wholesale decline of bees and other pollinators is most certainly an imminent hazard requiring emergency intervention, we want to be sure that EPA knows what’s at stake and knows we are watching.
Tell EPA to take immediate action to protect bees from a pesticide that clearly poses an imminent threat.
