Honey Bees are still in decline and (PANNA) Pesticide Action Network of North America says the pesticide CLOTHIANIDIN damages Bees immune system and fewer than half of infected bees die from from the parasite CLOTHIANIDIN is used against.

Bee colonies in the U.S. declined by more than one-third last year. The EPA is charged with removing from the marketplace any chemical that poses a threat to health or nature. Under the federal pesticide act, anything that poses imminent harm to health or to the environment must be pulled from circulation by the EPA regulators.But the EPA has not taken action to remove CLOTHIANIDIN because Bayer has distorted the science. The Bayer lobbyists are pressing for apporval of chemicals that cause colony collapse disorder, says Paul Towers, media director for PANNA.


In February, PANNA and the Center for Food along with 30 beekeepers filed a legal petition to the EPA urging it to act. The agency still has not acted.

"Now, says Powers It's up to everyday folks to put pressure on the EPA to put pressure on the EPA to cut through corporate mis-information-folks like you and me who want to continue to eat almonds and apples and other delicious food."

The Sonoma County Beekeepers Association says 556 bees visited 2 million flowers to make that pound of honey in your kichen. Bees have been here 30 million years.

Tell the EPA to pull CLOTHIANIDIN from the marketplace and keep our bees safe from this killer chemical.

      The reason should be obvious: As well intentioned as this pesticide's envisioned purpose may be, the bottom line is that it is not sufficiently tested and has already shown terrible effects that far outweight its usefulness. Please consider the long term effects before putting things like this "on the market" (or more accurately: "out into the system of the biosphere"). Thank you.
