This week Liz Truss, the environment minister, could decide to lift the ban on bee-killing pesticides for some crops this summer.
I think it is important that the ban remains in place, as lifting this ban would spell disaster for our bees. But you can bet the lobbyists from the big pesticide companies will be doing everything they can to convince Liz Truss to lift the ban.
So together, we need to drown them out. Please let all your readers know how important this is, and ask them to sign any petitions there are to request the ban to be held, and ask everyone to write to their MP.
All our lives and livelihoods are dependent on the bees, without which we would haveno food. It’s as simple as that.
