When the bees are gone, we have four years to live as a species. I’m thinking yes. But then we aren’t too bright.
David, I am a farmer/rancher now. I also worked for the USDA Cotton Insect Research Lab in Texas and was in the field subject to pesticide overspray of crops frequently. Mostly organophosphates but I got a good dose of Roundup too. I blame my Autoimmune diseases on these oversprays. While I sympathize with the farmer as you would see in my previous comments on farming, pesticides, especially neonics, aren’t the way to go. There are other proven methods to use.
