Bee-Toxic Pesticides Found in “Bee-Friendly” Plants Sold at Garden Centers

Bees are essential to the production of one out of every three bites of food we eat. 
In fact, 71 of the 100 crops that provide 90 percent of the world’s food—
from almonds to tomatoes and strawberries—are pollinated by bees.

Recommendations for consumers:
Take action: 
Join the Friends of the Earth BeeAction campaign at 
and sign the petition to garden retailers 
asking that they stop selling neonicotinoid treated plants 
and products that contain neonicotinoids.
