Take Action for Bees

The government are ignoring the advice of their own experts: last year the UK Expert Committee on Pesticides (ECP) once again advised against allowing thiamethoxam to be used and were again ignored by the government.

It is up to our leaders to take action for our pollinators. You can help to put the pressure on in a number of ways.

One of the easiest ways to make change is to spread awareness! Check out our images to share and ways to get creative…

Writing to your MP is arguably the most effective way to make your voice heard. You can use our template or create your own if you want to make it more personal.

With toxic bee killing pesticides in the air, our bees need a sanctuary, and if the government won’t protect our bees, we will! Send a strong message that our bees are in danger by building a bee refuge! Also known as bee hotels, they are the bee equivalent of a birdhouse. They provide nesting spaces for certain solitary bees and protect them for dangerous pesticides like thiamethoxam. This will in turn help increase bee populations and the pollination services they provide. A clear step by step guide on how to create your bee refuge can be found here. Remember to share your bee refuge on social media with the hashtag #BuzzOffNeonics, with a caption spreading awareness about our campaign.
