Help save the bees in Texas

This petition had 3,399 supporters

 As some people already know, bees are rapidly disappearing, and dying. But what some of you may not now are that we need bees to thrive and survive. If we don't take action now, many of our food may go extinct. My statement is that we should outlaw these harmful pesticides, and start using more natural strategies. I did some research into what is killing the bees and I found out that they're pesticides that farmers are using to get rid of unwanted bugs, but in return, they end up getting rid of bees. These pesticides specifically, are called neonicotinoids which include imidacloprid, acetamiprid, clothianidin, dinotefuran, nithiazine, thiacloprid and thiamethoxam. Sure pesticides are cheaper and more accessible, but at what cost? The extinction of roughly 2/3 of food at your local grocery stores? The extinction of bees?
