Stop the sale of seeds coated in bee-killing pesticides

Neonicotinoid pesticides have been found to be harmful and often lethal to bees, birds and other wildlife. This is especially troubling given the decline in multiple species of bees and birds. Coating seeds with these pesticides offers little to no protection. Birds eat the seeds. Dust from the seed coating lands on the bees, the plants where they forage, the hives where they live, and the water they drink from.

For the sake of pollinators and other wildlife, and for our own sake, we urge you to stop selling seeds coated with neonicotinoid pesticides.
