A California judge granted a reprieve to bees in California on Dec. 3 by ruling that approval of the pesticide sulfoxaflor violated state environmental law. Earthjustice represented beekeepers in court against the California Department of Pesticide Regulation. The ruling comes just in time to protect bees pollinating California’s almond crop.
The decision is welcome news not just for bees and other pollinators such as monarch butterflies that are harmed by sulfoxaflor, but for agriculture, our food security, and the wider ecosystems upon which we all depend. Earthjustice fights to sustain the biodiversity necessary for our planet to flourish, and this win is a step in the right direction.
Bees are in crisis and need advocates to fight for them.
As a result of our legal victory, sulfoxaflor can’t be used in California.
Bee deaths from sulfoxaflor highlight the threat posed by neonicotinoid insecticides.
Protecting bees is one component of our fight against mass die-offs of plants and animals. Join Earthjustice in asking the Biden administration to restore the Endangered Species Act, the most powerful legal tool we have for protecting species from extinction.
