We need the bees need to be protected.
Save the bees, mother!!!!! ;-)
Please Please everyone read this.
Many of us fought to have a ban in the Uk and Europe. We supposedly won. But the ban is a total sham.
The ‘ban’ doesn’t come into force until December. By then most if not all farmers will have purchased their chemical coated seeds for next year.
They are only banning 3 of the neonicotinoids. There are others, which will not be banned.
They are only being banned from using on pollinating plants, so will still be used on other crops, meaning that there...
They are only being banned from using on pollinating plants, so will still be used on other crops, meaning that there will continue to be residues on the land. And it is not known how long residues last for.
There is no ban on all the other insecticides, which may also be having a detrimental effect on all bees and other pollinating insects.
New studies show that not only are bees are being affected, but hoverflies and lacewings too. So the notion by many folk that there are other insects, which can go on pollinating, is false.
We have had the most amazing apple blossom this year, yet very few bees working it – one or two here and there. The same with comfrey, which would normally be humming with bumble bees. We in the Uk have had a very long winter, and still a cool spring. Indeed, the coldest spring in 50 years. This has undoubtedly has had a serious effect on bee populations of all kinds. Undoubtedly too, they have been weakened by chemicals.
Think about it seriously. Insecticides do that – kill insects! So...
Think about it seriously. Insecticides do that – kill insects! So what can we expect – dead bees, dead hoverflies, dead lacewings….. all for the sake of money and power.
The same people are pushing to ban all seeds that are not controlled by Monsanto and the other chemical industries, so that we have to use their genetically modified seeds, which will only grow by using their chemicals.
The same people who are trying to ban the use of homeopathy, herbs and other forms of natural healing, so that we are all hooked on to their drugs.
Part three: Please, everyone wake up to what is happening. These multinational companies are after world domination and politicians are falling over backwards to oblige.
So true.. we are not talking politics, but life as we know it.
befor its too late if it already isn't!!
pitty its only us saying stop,our com sold us out years ago,id love to say enjoy the ride ,but i know we will not.
Yes It is a case of tunnel vision with some of the bureaucrats. There is no thought about the wider implications.
thank you all for your responses, i have only found them as only John's was fed back to me. I am a member of the Wedmore Green Group here in England, and we lean on our 'poly-tishons' (oh, a species of parrot!!!!!!!!). perhaps you have local pressure groups you can work with, or join to help the cause. Or even start one yourselves. Just a thought. You can look up our website and get ideas. i wish you all well. melvyn ps i will be happy to hear from you.
It would be good to know the cut off date for this petion - a lot of petitions keep circulating and getting signed long past their sell-by date. Petition fatigue can set in if one discovers ones self wasting time with an old poetition...so this information [a date] needs to be in the first 3 paragraphs of page 1.
It states the days left above the signature timer (top right) - it's clear for all to see. Today 01/07/13 it shows 355 days left. :)
agree about the petitions and wot u saying. BUT the bees wont be old news
Yes bees are most important to our survival .
Bees are so important for our environment. It only makes perfect sense to protect them.
my dad was a bee keeper so I love this cause! I developed a severe allergy although it still has nothing whatsoever to do with pesticide contamination. These types of allergies have around for eons. Fortunately I had a top immunologist literally in the world to teach me about reaction called anaphylaxis. At the time the immunologist was one of 3 in Canada. The allergy is to a particular protein within the bee venom itself and although I hate the thought of pesticides decimating the bee...

The allergy is to a particular protein within the bee venom itself and although I hate the thought of pesticides decimating the bee population, pesticides have nothing to to with an allergic reaction to the venom by itself. Always check with a specialist.
what's the BUZZ tell me what's happening, OH NO we need to save the BEE's ~ no bees no food.
Every body should take care to save these bees.
Please sign this petition, your lives and childrens', and grand childrens' lives may depend on the outcome of the EPAs decisions.
I am phobic of bees but, we need them. We are at a greater risk from the pesticides that are sprayed on our crops. Pesticides are not only killing BEES!
