The European Commission has proposed a ban on the use of neonicotinoids for an initial 2 year period. This move is a step in the right direction to save our bees and ensure good food and good farming in Europe.

During the first vote on this ban on March 15th 2013, no majority decision was reached by the national ministers for agriculture from the different EU member states.

The ministers are set to vote again in an attempt to reach a final decision.

You still have time to influence their decision: Email your minister today to encourage them to make the right decision on April 29th 2013.
