Well-known Mexican-American actor Edward James Olmos took to Twitter recently to voice his displeasure over two major home improvement chains that have continued to sell deadly pesticides despite their known negative impacts on the environment.

According to this online petition, which Olmos linked to in his tweet, scientists have discovered that “neonics” are killing bees in record numbers—an estimated 37 million bees were killed by these pesticides on one North American farm last year alone. The petition calls for retail giants Home Depot and Lowe’s to discontinue their sale of deadly pesticides, and encourages consumers to ban the stores until neonics have been permanently removed from the shelves.

The Battlestar Gallactica star addressed the issue on his Twitter account, saying:

 

 

Bees play a vital role in maintaining a healthy environment, and a large portion of the United States’ food supply depends on the pollination of certain crops. Hopefully, Home Depot and Lowe’s will acknowledge Olmos’ words and take action to protect bee populations by discontinuing the sale of these deadly pesticides in their retail stores.
