We know that the bee crisis is No Longer A BIG Mystery. The widespread use of systemic neonicotinoid (or neonic) pesticides is really detrimental to bees. Please sign petition to urge Obama to protect pollinators.

Thank you Krista, and GG for the Honor to sign what is of great concern to our existence. I definitely 'have time' to sign any and all petitions regarding our pollinators as well as promoting any pesticides...ANY MORE ! I will definitely share this with all I know. I was unaware there was a National Honey Bee Day and will honor it by planting the appropriate herbs in our Farm!

"The widespread use of systemic neonicotinoid (or neonic) pesticides is really detrimental to bees."

My local paper ran a two part Sunday series on this issue a month or so ago. We have NO idea of the long term consequences to humans, let alone every other life form on the planet, of using these deadly toxins which inevitably run off the land and into virtually every river, stream and aquifer on the planet. These in particular are killing bees without which much of what we eat doesn't exist - these little gems pollinate most of our food supply. We would be hard-pressed to live without them. But we may well have to try.

I've brought up the Save America's Pollinators Act to my congressman for the past two years. He actually remembered me from last year and said there's another bill in the House to increase bee habitat near highways, he supports that bill more than the Save America's Pollinators Act, citing neonics as only one of the many reasons for bee die-off.

Then, I talked to his assistant and expressed my desire to help bees by planting bee friendly flowers in my yard. I told him how I didn't plant any flowers this year because I found out that nurseries were treating these very "bee-friendly" plants with neonics... I concluded by saying that I haven't seen a single honeybee or bumblebee since last summer...

Unfortunately, I'm the only one at his town hall meetings who even talks about the bees' rapid decline...
