No to killer sprays, beause we need these busy bees to pollenate the flowers of our essential fruit and vegetables, and collect the nectar for honey.

The bees are vitally important to the survival of us as a species. The bees go so do humans.

I wish I could raise bees and a few other animals, however, I have no land and live in a populated town!

They are part of our environment. Without them as with many if not most, life as we know it would change for the worse. More people dying of cancer etc etc you get the BIG PICTURE here?

Imidacloprid. Spray it on lawns. It goes throgh the plants and appears in the pollen of clover. The bees take it back to the hive. Organic plant based pesticides have been banned on the basis of research of the same kind of people that said imidacloprid was safe. Which reminds me of something I once heard "Reseachers often find in favour of those who fund them".

Bees populate over 80% of the everyday foods that we eat... this is no laughing matter... we truly would not have food if they disappear...
