This article clearly points out the major issue with unregulated pesticide use. Neonicotinoids are probably not the single cause bee die-off, but they do contribute to the overall problem. Bees have been weakened by the rampant varroa mite. Add poor nutrition, loss of forage (monoculture), stress, to the mite that feasts on larva and healthy bees, and you have a recipe for disaster. Once weakened, bees are having a much more difficult time recouping their strength.
