Since we humans don't seem to understand the importance of honeybees, we are nothing but absolutely worthless idiots!

Ty for posting this important article. . .

Can we get a law against the mass extermination of honeybees? Not talking about the single unwanted nest in someones garage, although getting a pro to move it would be preferable, but not everyone can afford that - I'm referring to poisoning hundreds of colonies at a time. Intentionally or not - people: do your homework!

The ones that need to do their homework being the "scientists" who think they can change the plant instead of pulling a few weeds.

I wonder if they understand the catastrophic consequences it will cause if the bees disappear?
Thanks Timothy for sharing

We're the DUMBEST species of all---we just don't get it. All pesticides should be banned period before it's too late...but as i said humans are DUMB. Thx Timothy
