More than 80,000 people have signed a petition calling for honeybee colonies to be removed from the face of the earth.
The petition was organised by a group called the Friends of Honeybees, which describes itself as a group of passionate supporters of bees.
“It’s time for the honeybees to go,” said the petition, which was shared on Twitter.
“We can’t afford to have our honeybee population decline because of climate change, we have to act now.”
The petition also called on people to stop buying honeybee products from Honeywell.
The company said it was not aware of the petition.
“Honeybees are a part of our portfolio and we have a long history of protecting and supporting them,” Honeywell said in a statement.
“This is a passionate and challenging petition from a group who have never before expressed an opinion about our products.”
Honeywell has been the subject of much criticism over its bee-friendly products.
Last year, the company removed a honeybee-themed perfume from its shelves and later banned the sale of the product for six months.
Earlier this year, it announced a new line of honeybee shampoo, which is made with 100 per cent natural ingredients.
The new shampoo is being marketed to consumers in Europe, Australia and the US, and has received widespread positive reviews.
