+ - Bee research details harm from insecticides->

tedgyz writes: "The Washington Post reports that new research points to pesticides as one of the causes of the disappearing bees. Ironically, these pesticides are considered more environmentally friendly than their predecessors. The neonicotinoids do not kill the bees outright, but disorient them so they cannot find their back to the hive. The study also shows an 85% decline in production of queens."
