Petco Park & MLB Bee Management

On June 3rd, 2019 thousands of honeybees were searching for a new home and ended up choosing a piece of media equipment during a baseball game. The bees were subsequently exterminated by Cartwright Termite and Pest Control Inc. (the official pest control service of the Padres) with toxic poison spray and a vacuum. There are other, better methods which should have been used in this situation, carried out by professionals in this field. 

Tell the San Diego Padres, Cartwright Termite and Pest Control Inc., and Major League Baseball that they must relocate bees or other unwanted wildlife using trained, professional, and ethical professionals in conjunction with ecologically friendly relocation methods. 

In addition, the San Diego Padres must pledge at least $20,000 annually for the next 10 years to support local not-for-profit beekeeping programs which seek to grow healthy colonies and prevent bees from suffering from colony collapse disorder or other serious issues related to the use neonicotinoids or other human behaviors.

Lastly, the MLB must take action to ensure each and every ballpark has a humane plan for future issues related to wildlife entering stadiums. This must be completed before January 1, 2020.

Bees help much of our food grow, we are killing them to the point of near extinction (like many other species). Show the Padres and other organizations that the actions that occurred on June 3rd are unacceptable in today's world where ecological damages caused by humans are so severe.
