Signed. Bees are so important to our food supply. Imagine a world with no fruits and vegetable and grains, and then no mean because they need to eat grain. Please help save the bees.

we had 2 beehives that thrived the first year, and died by year 2.I can't say for sure that it was just pesticides, but it makes sense that something that kills bugs will also kill bees. They are quite necessary in propagation of our fruits and vegetables in order for them to become a healthy and abundant crop.

I think giving bees status as an endangered species makes sense. We can't continue to have one-third to one half of bee colonies die off every year. When DDT destroyed the bald eagles ability to lay and hatch viable eggs, their addition to the endangered species list led to the elimination of DDT, another pesticide that destroyed the eco-systems which were exposed to it. If bees are declared endangered, then bye-bye to the neocontinoids which are at least partially responsible for the bee's disappearance.
