The rapid death of honeybee colonies has become an incredibly large issue. There are many factors who are killing the bees such as mites, climate change, corn syrup, and most importantly pesticides and insecticides. Bees count for billions of dollars worth of pollination services and its estimates that 1 in every 3 bites of food is made possible by bees. Without them we would lose many important foods such as broccoli, carrots, strawberries, apples, and many many more. These pollinators are very important to help us live so we should be doing everything to help them. Some pesticides made by big companies such as Monsanto and Bayer are meant to help crops, but some are being noticed as very harmful to bees. They can kill bees on contact or some can slow the bees brains, forcing them to forget how to find flowers and even get back to the hive. We can start the goal of ridding all use of these harsh chemicals in our own town. 

 

We recently noticed lawns in the middle of Fort St. John are using pesticides to remove the weeds from their lawns. School District 60's board office building uptown used pesticides to remove weeds from their grass in May 21st 2017. This is right by our homes and a great spot in town for bees to pollinate. We want our city to be pesticide and insecticide free.
