Keep the pesticide ban and bee friendly to insects

Bee friendly this summer.
Bee friendly this summer.

It’s not been the best spring for bees so far. Cold and wet.

Let’s hope the weekend brings them some better weather, and that everyone’s efforts to help the bees - bee friendly plants and seeds in gardens, bee houses - do the trick. But more than that - let’s hope that the Government doesn’t lift the ban on the pesticides that kill them.

Two applications have been made this year asking the Government to lift that ban. That would negate everyone’s efforts to help the bees. Let’s hope that our MP, and the Government as a whole, see sense and keep that ban in place.
