With the long, cold winter in the UK this year, on top of a summer last year which was pretty hard on wildlife, bees are having a difficult time and populations are dropping severely.

As if the Varroa Mite was not enough on top of this – some pesticides regularly used in the UK contain neonicotinoid, which is also proven to kill bees. Their populations across the UK are getting decimated, yet they are responsible for cross-pollinating at least a third of the plants from which us humans eat the produce. It is estimated, that without bees – human beings would die out within five years or so as their would be no cross pollination of plants.

Added to that, other species on this planet have as much right to exist as we do. It is essential that humans stop destroying other species and cultures through their short sighted greed.

Now in what can only be described as an utterly cynical marketing campaign, ASDA are now selling bee-killing neonicotinoid pest sprays – but promoting their sale by giving away free packets of ‘bee friendly’ garden plant seeds.

Booklet of 90 ‘This Product Kills Bees’ stickers

This rattled my cage enough to produce these free sticker layouts that you are welcome to download and print onto self-adhesive stickers to ‘correct’ this disinformative marketing ploy in ASDA and other shops and gardening centres that abandon responsibility to the environment in preference to profit.

Simply stick these stickers onto products in shops that kill bees, in order to inform other customers who might not realize that this is what they are doing by purchasing the product.

    I love this. Thank you. I work at a garden center here in the US and should be able to easily covert these stickers on, with my back up verbal education- one gardener at a time.
