The plight of British bees has had a great deal of coverage lately and I have received emails and letters from many concerned constituents. Although the European Commission decided at the end of April to proceed with a ban on the use of certain bee-harming pesticides, there is still much to be done if we want to reverse the decline in bee numbers.
Friends of the Earth is calling on the Prime Minister to commit to a Bee Action Plan to tackle all major causes of bee decline. It is also supporting individuals who wish to make changes to their gardens and communities to help local bees.
