It’s long been known that Earth’s honeybee population is decreasing at an alarming rate. The fact is, much of our natural ecosystem depends on the processes involved with bee pollination, and if this pollination cannot happen, many of our crops — from broccoli to strawberries — will be in grave peril.
In fact, honeybee deaths are reaching a critical point, whereby it may not be possible to reverse the damage. The good news is that much of the population decline can be attributed to human actions, including the use of nicotine-based insecticides that cause bees to literally drop dead.
We can afford insects eating our plant life; but we simply cannot afford a decimation of the honeybee. Write to the EPA asking that these immensely harmful pesticides are outlawed.
