A recent mailing included the following:
Bee populations have been falling fast around the world, and dropped an alarming 23% in the U.S. last winter.
A strong and growing body of evidence points to exposure to a class of neurotoxic pesticides called neonicotinoids — the fastest-growing and most widely used class of synthetic pesticides — as a key contributing factor to bee declines.
Food Revolution Summit speaker Michele Simon has issued a new report in conjunction with Friends Of the Earth. She details how three of the leading pesticide corporations — Bayer, Syngenta, and Monsanto — are engaged in a massive public relations disinformation campaign to distract the public and policymakers from thinking that pesticides might have something to do with bee death and destruction.

Yours for the bees,
P.S. Bees are responsible for pollinating apples, almonds, berries, and many other things. It’s important to have the truth about the pesticide company’s misinformation campaigns so you can be informed and take action for the bees. Find out more here.
Do I have your attention??? The planet is being poisoned and (IMHO) the Honeybees are the "canary in the coal mine."
I have shared honeybee deaths and CCD info here MANY times. There many ways YOU can help the honeybees.
-Add Milkweed to your garden. GREAT for Monarch Butterflies as well
|Mammoth Black Sunflower|
-Stay away from using harsh chemicals in your garden and yard. Most chemical pesticides also kill beneficial insects.
-Support your local beekeepers. Buying local honey is a great way to show your support and is a delicious treat. It has been suggested that eating local honey can help with seasonal allergies. Local honey is also eco-friendly as it does not have to travel thousands of miles and possibly contain nasty chemical additives.
-Learn more about bees, beekeeping and CCD. Have you ever considered backyard beekeeping? Now would be a great time to learn more!
