Breaking: Bayer’s bee-killing pesticides are killing birds too.

 

A terrifying new study has found that the exact same pesticides causing the massive global bee die-off are now killing birds as well.

The bee die-off has been happening so fast that scientists are scrambling to detect all the impacts. This new study finds that neonic pesticides are killing warblers, swallows, starlings, and thrushes nearly as fast as the bees — at current rates, 35% of the bird population will disappear just 10 years in the areas studied.

We need to get these toxic pesticides off the market before they cause a new “silent spring” — and our efforts are gaining momentum.

In Europe, there’s a moratorium on bee and bird-killing neonics. Ontario is close to becoming the first Canadian province to ban them as well.

But Bayer — the pesticide company responsible for these toxic pesticides — has an army of lawyers suing to overturn the EU moratorium, and their million-dollar lobbyists are fighting to kill Ontario’s bee protection bill. The only way we can win is if we all fight back together.
