The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has classified clothianidin as "highly toxic" to honeybees. Clothianidin is marketed as "Poncho" by Bayer Crop Science. The chemical was approved for U.S. use in 2003 and German use in 2004.

No bees, no pollination. No crops, no fruit, no feed, you get the picture.
Clothianidin is killing off our bee population. They are some of the hardest working creatures in nature and we all benefit greatly because of them. They are treasures and we ought to be helping them any way that we can, not killing them off. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has classified clothianidin as "highly toxic" to honeybees. If it isn't enough for the USDA to prohibit the chemical companies to ban this chemical to save our honeybees, then they additionally need to think about the fact that we are ingesting poison as well. These pesticides are poisoning all of us out of existence. This needs to be banned now!
