We are BEE friendly: All plants at the SacValley CNPS Fall Plant Sale are Neonicotinoid Free!
What’s a Neonicotinoid? Neonicotinoids are a class of neuro-active insecticides chemically similar to nicotine. The use of neonicotinoids was linked in a range of studies to a number of adverse ecological effects, including honey-bee colony collapse disorder and loss of birds due to reduction in insect populations. Increased scrutiny eventually led to restrictions and bans on the use of different neonicotinoids in several countries. Give BEES a Chance!
