Save our bees!

by michaelandrewes on 21 April, 2013

Bees are a very important part of our ecosystems in towns, cities and the countryside.

There are concerns that pesticides that contain neonicotinoids, which target insect nervous systems, could have immediate and long-term impacts on bee colony and survival and development as they damage the insects’ ability to forage for food.

MPs on the cross-party environmental audit committee have urged a ban on their use as a precautionary measure.

I am therefore campaigning to protect bees. Please support my petition at http://campaigns.libdems.org.uk/saveourbees
