Letter: Pestticides - Bees are so important

Bee looking to gather some pollen.

I am concerned about pressure being applied to the Government Minister to lift the ban on using pesticides which affect our bees by manufacturers of neonicotinoid pesticides.

As a concerned resident I have this year been planting bee-friendly wild flower seeds.

Bees play an important part in the annual life cycle. This affects us all.

I want all our local MPs to put pressure on the minister to resist reversing the ban already in place.

This would be dangerous for both bees and people’s livelihoods.
