According to latest reports, exposure to neonicotinoid-treated flowering crops has been shown to have significant negative effects on much more than free flying wild bees.
eonicotinoids are the most widely used class of insecticides in the world. But like DDT, the infamous insecticide of the 1970s, evidence illustrates these neurotoxins are harming birds, bees, and our entire planet.
It took only a decade for the agency in charge of protecting our environment to make a stand against the systemic pesticides killing bees. Now what? Is it all part of their Kabuki dance with the chemical companies.
Freezing temperatures, killer parasites, toxic chemicals: The plight of honey bees is getting worse in many parts of the world.
The EPA just approved the use of the new insecticide sulfoxaflor, which the agency itself admits is highly toxic to honeybees.
