Pesticides are poison and they are killing our planet and all the life on it. We need to do away with them.

India it appears is only able to take one step forward, then take that step back.

May the Almighty grant them no more no less what they deserve for killing his creation!

Makes sense to me, we have killed off the natural predators then turn to stronger toxins to kill the stronger pests. A cycle that increases the toxins in the water and soils. Slow suicide for all of us.

Agree with Kit. Shall we all just consume cyanide and end all living beings? Sheesh!

I'm a member of Tiger Nation and over the last couple of months in the reserves in India, such as Ranthambhore some of the "star" tigers have disappeared, literally without a trace
Poaching was one of the main possibilities, but the experts on Tiger Nation have not been able to say for sure that the missing tigers were poached because there has been no usual evidence of poaching. But this article explains it. Some of the missing tigers may have been poached using this pesticide, and that would explain how they can just disappear without a trace!
Thanks Cher
