Neonicotinoids have been shown in studies to kill bees and reduce sperm counts in male bees. Chesapeake PSR supports reducing use of neonics in Maryland. Please sign this petition asking Ace Hardware and others to stop selling plants treated with neonicotinoid pesticides.
The Pollinator Protector Act becomes law in Maryland, limiting the use of bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticides. We owe our appreciation to many groups, including the Maryland Pesticide Network, the beekeepers of Maryland, and the Maryland General Assembly.
Nearly 61 percent of bees in Maryland were lost in the last year. Chesapeake PSR urges Maryland Governor Larry Hogan to sign the Pollinator Protection Act to limit household neonicotinoids.
