Neonicotinoid pesticides in the UK has been responsible for the decline in various insects, including the much desirable bee population, necessary for pollination and the environment. Environmentalists are also finding out that these pesticides are being responsible for more than the eradication of bees.
These pesticides are being absorbed in the plant or seed they are applied to, killing any insects that feed on the plant. It has been found that it does so much more, including surrounding soil, air and water. Contamination of these treated plants can be transferred in the wind, trickling down to the soil, floating away in nearby waterways and causing other chemical issues. As a result of the Neonicotinoid pesticides, there is much more danger than eradicating a nuisance insect or beneficial bee.

Our efforts in this petition is to ask the UK to ban the use of Neonicotinoid pesticides that is not only killing bees, but also contaminating the air, soil and water. You can help us in our efforts by signing and sharing this petition.
UK & Parliament Government, David Cameron – There is clear evidence that the use of Neonicotinoid pesticides is not only a danger to the existence of the much-needed bee population but also to the environment. It has been shown that these pesticides spreads through the treated plants, transferring in the wind to contaminate the air, soil and water. You need to ban the use of the Neonicotinoid pesticides completely that is killing bees along with endangering humans through the air and in the waters.
