We have to stop using all, I mean all, the poisons that are being used in agriculture. They are destroying usefull insects, disrupting the food chain, poisoning all living beings, including us. The change will not come from above, because above, all they can think of is money. We have to bee the change. We have to buy organic, buy organic, buy organic. If their poisoned foods don't sell anymore, they'll have to do something about it.

Have you seen the list of 180-some "acceptable" chemicals applied to "organic" foods???? The term organic has been manipulated and abused until it means little to nothing.

Bees are cool. We need them more than they need us. In fact they don't need us at all...

I have a bee hive. In my wall. Above my bed. I have to defend my bee hive against a succession of neighbours that live in the rental house next door. I explain to them how important bees are to my vege patch... suddenly they start thinking bees are good instead of bees might sting me or my kids... but I have to EXPLAIN that every time.

amphibians, insects, bats, birds...this die off is a symptom as the tip of the iceberg as to what chemicals in our world are doing to us.

Check the rates pf lung cancer in non-smokers. Lung cancer is judged so harshly by the populous, yet it can affect anyone. The very people that throw stones may very well find it surface in their friends or family. Then, maybe people will wake-up because it still is the No. #ONE KILLER, by disease. To me, it's awful that folks pass judgement on sick, dying, or dead people for any reason. Sorry about the tirade kiddo. I will sign the petition today. What about an "Anti-greed Petition "? Luv

As a bee keeper myself ,I find that I can no longer afford to keep them. It's painful to see a hive die off from chemical poisoning. But look who we are dealing with here....Big business ,Bayer, all the people that make billions because that's the name of that game!! A few get rich so that many end up poor. I feel it's already too late .....wise up people...the greed of these big company's comes before some friggin little insect!

Hi Ed. I agree wholeheartedly. Move to Amend is a national organization working to end corporate rule and take back our democracy. It gets to the roots of many of the world's problems, the corporate takeover of the resources of the earth. The movement is to abolish corporate personhood and strike down the legality of money as a form of free speech. This will help bring the power back to the people. Check it out. Movetoamend.org Keep up the good work with the bees.

Apis bombidae, yes but no Apis Melifera.. Honey bee! Previously I kept a dozen

And now we got more chemical s dumped into the environment for what good??? We need neonicotines?? How are they going to be good for you and I if they kill the honey bees ..I honestly think some fecking idiot screwed up big
Time spent someone else's money makin some bullshit formula that's completely
Fucking up the whole environment ! Worse than asbestos,bad as mercury and anyone with half a brain knows these folks didn't do their homework..if they did
They would have realized they killed the hero of the American food basket!!

I am elated I have never seen so many bees in my garden before, pollunation is certainly being done in my area, but then we do live in a low polluted area

I Agree With You Melvyn. We Need To Keep The Pressure Groups Going Globally, For As Long As It Takes, Until We Get People To See The BIG PICTURE Of What Killing These Bees Mean! And Hopefully Before It's Too Late!
