Our bees are dying at alarming rates -- U.S beekeepers lost a staggering 1/3 of commercial honey bee hives last winter. We are rapidly nearing the point at which we will no longer have enough bees left to pollinate our crops.
Yet Bayer Crop Science continues to churn out neonicotinoid pesticides which we now know are responsible for part, if not all, of the bee die-offs. Meanwhile Bayer touts its commitment to "sustainability" and proclaims itself the "protector of crops." But how on earth does peddling toxic chemicals that kill the very bees our crops rely on equal "protecting our crops"???
Bayer must stop manufacturing and marketing these chemicals that are killing our bees and poisoning our soil and other living things in the process.
