Tell the EPA to ban the bee-killing pesticide imidacloprid

Docket No. EPA-HQ-OPP-2008-0844

EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt,

I am deeply concerned that the EPA has published reports recognizing that imidacloprid poses risks to honey bees as part of its updated risk assessment, but has yet to remove the pesticide from the market.

I urge you to take immediate action, listen to scientific studies, including your agency’s own analysis, that provide compelling evidence that the pesticide is harmful, and ban all neonicotinoids, including imidacloprid, dinotefuran, clothianidin and thiamethoxam.
