Once upon a time all honey bees had to worry about were silly old bears. Now there may be some hard evidence that a new kind of insecticides called neonicotinoids could be weakening and killing bees.

It stands to reason, if you spray, you get no hay... we all live with polution, in different ways, controlled doses, ie, chloride in water, noted and lets save the bees :)

How are we going to have vegetables if we don't have bees?? Food prices will skyrocket and a vegetable will be higher than meat! Somehow, we have to get rid of these terrible pesticides!!
