Friends of the Earth announced a BeeAction Campaign this summer to stop the sale of plants treated with neonicotinoid pesticides but labeled "bee-friendly" at large retail garden centers.
Bees carry poisoned pollen and nectar back to their nests, impairing their offsprings' immune systems and compromising their development.
You can support nurseries that don't raise plants from pesticide-treated seeds.
