Retailers should stop the sale of neonicotinoid pesticides to protect honey bees and other pollinators essential to our food supply and the environment.

Bees are essential for one out of three bites of food we eat. But last winter, beekeepers reported losses of 50-70 percent of their hives -- the worst year yet since the global bee die-off began!

A growing body of scientific evidence is pointing to neonicotinoids (neonics) as the key factor in this crisis and the European Union has just imposed a two year ban on these toxic pesticides.

These neonics are everywhere -- in commercial agriculture, on the shelf of your local garden stores, and in the plants and seeds we buy from nurseries.

Bee part of the solution! Tell Home Depot, Lowe’s and others to stop selling neonics.

I have my own homemade concoction I use to kill wasps - my daughter is very allergic to wasps, and she needs to have her Epipen with her every summer. My homemade wasp killer does not attract bees or bumble bees, only flies and wasps. And I got the recipe right at the very first try. Been using it for years, and have a strong bee and bumble bee population living near my house.

Isa maybe you could share on here your formula.

We're fighting to protect bees and other pollinators from toxic neonic pesticides - the most widely used pesticides in the world. We're up against powerful companies that profit from the use of these poisons. Victories have already been won in Europe and we can win here too.

Signed.

So we're to lure the bees in and then zap them with the pesticide if necessary. Insanity rules! I hope they'll listen, but we really need to just stop shopping at these big box stores and start supporting locally-owned businesses, where people might be willing to listen to our concerns.

Gladly signed. Our government needs to get its act together and fast before we have even more of a disaster on our hands with the loss of the bees. My state is already suffering from low crop yield due to lack of bee pollination.
