Our honey bees are dying!
According to a comprehensive scientific report by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA); the honey bee population is declining at a rate of 34 percent a year.
This decline is due to a variety of factors, one of which happens to be exposure to neonicotinoid pesticides.
Due to the alarming decline of honey bee populations, the EPA has taken action to help out one of this country’s most beneficial insects; banning pesticides in areas where honey bees are present, invoking mew pesticides laws pertaining to honey bees, and creating new pesticide labels to accompany neonicotinoid pesticides. The new pesticide labels will let pest control operators clearly know if the product can kill honey bees.
This website is dedicated to raising awareness for the decline of the honeybee, and raising awareness of “bee safe” pesticides and “bee safe” pesticide practices.
