Bees are fighting for survival, threatened by disease, climate change and pesticides including neonicotinoids.
Neonicotinoids have been shown to cause harm to bees, so their use as a seed treatment is currently banned in Europe.
But last week UK Environment Secretary Elizabeth Truss went against growing scientific evidence and accepted a request made by UK farmers to use the bee-harming pesticide again this autumn.
We need bees to pollinate so many of our crops and flowers. No bees means less food.
