Bees

PAOV — When you sit down for your holiday meal, one third of the food on your table will be there thanks to pollinators like bees! But the world’s bee population is under threat because insecticides like neonics threaten bees’ ability to navigate, learn, collect food, and reproduce. The Canadian Wildlife Federation wants our government to ban the use of neonics and invest in alternatives. You can help by adding your name today.

Sign now with a click Neonicotinoids (neonics) are a group of insecticides that are chemically related to nicotine. Hundreds of studies show that of the use of neonics cause pollinators — like bees — significant harm. It affects their ability to navigate, learn, collect food, and reproduce. On top of the other major environmental stressors, neonics are a major threat for our disappearing wild pollinators.

Neonics are now the most widely used insecticides in the world. Global sales are estimated to be over US $2.6 billion dollars. In Canada, five of these insecticides are approved for use on many of our foods, including corn, soy, peas, beans, fruits and vegetables. They remain active in the plant for many months, and in the soil up to several years.

As part of the CWF’s launch of Ban With a Plan, we encourage you to sign this petition to urge the Government of Canada to continue to address this issue and ban the use of neonicotinoid pesticides and invest in alternatives. Sign now with a click Visit petition page
