Neonicotinoid pesticides have been filling the headlines once more. The health of the local bee population is a serious concern for us – and not just because we need them to pollinate our fruit trees!

We thought you might like to know that earlier this year we included a paragraph about this particular group of chemicals in our pesticide policy. We have also removed from sale all of the products that contain the three neonicotinoids thought to be most likely to cause harm.

Don’t worry about those missing products – we have had some extensive staff training so each and every one of us can walk you through the alternative solutions! As part of the extra help to navigate your way between ‘friendly’ and ‘unfriendly’ products look out for our new traffic light system which will be springing into action over the next couple of weeks.

If you have any questions then please do feel free to pop into one of the centres or give us a call
