Keep speaking for the bees!

Protect pollinators, don’t gut pesticide law
 
Bees contribute over $30 million to Minnesota’s agricultural economy by pollinating key crops and producing honey — but they’re in serious trouble. Honey bees, native bees, and butterflies have been dying off at alarming rates in recent years; Minnesota beekeepers reported losing more than 50 percent of their hives in 2015.
 
In a recent study, the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) concluded that pesticides are a key factor in pollinator decline. But instead of moving forward by adopting MDA’s science-based recommendations, in the Agricultural Budget bills (SF780/HF895), Minnesota legislators are considering rolling back our state’s pesticide protections.
 
Please tell your representatives and the Governor that you support the robust pollinator action plan proposed by the Department of Agriculture, not rollbacks for key pesticide laws.
