Dr Mercola an internet site reported 25000dead bees in just one parking lot. The 55trees were sprayed recently or the seeds they grew from kept this pesticide in them until maturity. Monsanto are tryin to get out of blames way again by hiring their own bee monitoring systym with a humoungous grant for their leading researcher. Can they be trusted! I highly doubt it.
The report that I saw mentioned a lot of dead Ladybirds (AKA Laydybug) as well & said that the trees were sprayed in order to kill aphids....Ladybirds eat aphids, but there is no profit in letting nature deal with the pests for free.......
I agree. I also hope the park owners are fined. It states on the directions that this particular insecticide not to spray in bee season.
When will Humans learn that the mismanagement of land resources anywhere in the world threatens their own existence as well as the many underprivileged but beneficial creatures in our habitat? I can't help but question whether we truly are the most intelligent of the species.
Finn MacCool would also sign!
So called sport...ridiculous!!
Nobody needs another golf course in their neighborhood, prime land, which could be a nature preserve or habitat. In my eye, golf course's are a waste of pliable property!! Real sportsmen don't golf.... and to wipe out a rare species for a so-called "spiridiculous!
The bees are dying out. We are the cause... issues include pesticides, and agribusiness. The mono crops is a major factor. 2/3rds of our food is dependent on bees. At the rate the bees are dying we will have no bees by 2035. Less than 25 years. Your children will starve.
If it's for another golf course, anywhere in the world, President Obama of the USA will be backing it to the max.
I really want to sign this petition, but the site wants access to my friends' details and I don't allow that. What should I do?
Keep our nature balanced the way it was intended to be.
@ Joanne, Monsanto can be trusted with NOTHING!......As I am sure we all agree here.
