Are Your Plants Safe?
Neonicotinoids, a class of pesticide extremely toxic to bees and other pollinators, are often used in the production of ornamental trees, shrubs, and flowers commonly purchased for home and business landscaping. The chemical, called a ‘systemic,’ moves throughout the entire plant, making pollen and nectar in flowers toxic.
NCAP researched Oregon nurseries to discover the ones growing neonic-free and abstaining from the sale of neonics. Please vote with your dollar by supporting these nurseries. If you know of other neonic-free nurseries, please tell us so we can expand our list throughout the Northwest Region! Email: Info@pesticide.org
