WHAT YOU CAN DO TO SAVE THE BEES:
The European Union illegalized neonicotinoids throughout the EU in late April 2018. Please help the United States to follow the EU's lead and illegalize neonicotinoids throughout the United States.
MOST IMPORTANTLY: Contact Congress (both the House of Representatives and the Senate). Ask your local and state representatives to help save the bees and ultimately our world by adding the illegalization of neonicotinoids produced by the Bayer Corporation to the top of their legislative agendas. Ask them to follow the lead of the European Union and the State of Maryland to illegalize the use of neonicotinoids (the pesticide responsible for the bees being added to the endangered species list). Tell them that the goal is to illegalize neonicotinoids in all 50 states throughout the U.S.
Contact Your Local Senators & House of Representatives through the links below where you can type in your address and find the contact info for your local Senators and House of Representatives. You can call, email, or write letters. The bees will thank you! "Save the Bees, Save the World"
"Save the bees, Save the World"
- Plant bee friendly plants if you want to help bees thrive like in this video.
- Bees love: Lavendar, Sage, Thyme, Rosemary, Mint, Oregano, African Blue Basil, Blackberries & Raspberries, Rhodendrum, White Clover, Cotoneaster, Heather, Purple Toadflax, California Lilac, Bachelor's Buttons, Bellflower, Forget-Me-Nots, Yellow Mustard, English Daisy, Borage, Shrubby Veronica, Aster, Escallonia, Calendula and Geraniums!
- Try to buy local and organic, support your local farmers!
- Do not buy MGO's (largest user of neonicotinoids are commercial farmers, which destroy our natural ecosystems).
- Support apiculture and your local Beekeepers Guild if you're interested in becoming an urban beekeeper.
- Again, Call Congress and ask them to make the illegalization of neonicotinoids produced by the Bayer Corporation their highest priority to help biodiversity and to help save the bees and other pollinators that are responsible for 60-90% of the world's food source.
