Honey bees are dropping like, well, bees, as you certainly have heard. Now, a Harvard study has determined the key to Colony Collapse Disorder – neonicotinoids, the most widely used insecticides worldwide, are the culprit.
The authors state, without equivocation, “The results from this study not only replicate findings from the previous study, but also reinforce the conclusion that the sublethal exposure to neonicotinoids is likely the main culprit for the occurrence of CCD.”
Now’s the time to tell the USDA, and your state and local officials what they need to do about that!
Spread the word, make your voice heard.
