Boycott Neonicotinoid Pesticides!

In an effort to protect our bee population, don't purchase pesticides labelled as neonicotinoids! Bayer CropScience is a leading manufacturer, but other brands are on the market as well. These "neonicotinoids," are produced from a synthetic chemical based on nicotine. Used nearly everywhere, from golf courses to cornfields to your own front yard, they are thought to be much safer for humans and animals than other pesticides. However, research is showing that these pesticides are still toxic enough to kill insects.

When bees suffer, so do we! Lower quality produce at much higher prices? NO THANK YOU!

      Humanity cannot afford to lose the bees. Few people really understand how much we depend upon them to pollinate the food crops that our lives depend upon. There are safe alternatives to bee-killing pesticides. Please learn about these alternatives and use them.

      I am mortified by the disappearance of the bees - and even more so of the pesticide company's reluctance (as well as other corporations) to admit that there could possibly be a problem. Once again, the American Way: Corporate greed and well-being over the health and common sense of the American poeple. I have two young children and would like to ensure that they have food in their future.

      Can you just envision a world where only the wealthy can purchase food items pollinated by bees because of the scarcity that is sure to come?
