In late August, Minnesota’s governor announced new rules to restrict the use of bee-harming pesticides. These are some of the strongest policies to take on this pesticide problem nationwide.
Let’s build on Minnesota’s momentum! Urge your governor to take action for bees!
Under the new rules in Minnesota, no one can use bee-harming neonicotinoids unless they can prove a dire need. This is great news! A clear body of science has shown that neonics, alone and in combination with other pesticides, are a key factor in the dramatic pollinator die-offs we’ve been seeing.
Minnesota’s governor followed the science and took meaningful action to protect pollinators. Tell your governor to do the same!
