Beekeepers Ask The EPA To Ban A Pesticide Toxic To Bees

Filed under: Science!InsectsBugs

A group of commercial beekeepers has filed a petition to ask the EPA to regulate the use of a pesticide that has proved toxic to honey bees.

These chemicals kill certain insects but are supposed to leave the good ones (in this case bees) unharmed.

But what happened is the poison can lead to a weakened immune system in the bees, which could contribute to colony collapse disorder.

Colony collapse disorder is where all the adult honeybees in a colony suddenly die or disappear.

Other countries have already banned these types of insecticides.

A professor of entomology (bug doctor) said:

"The EPA admits that their testing has not been adequate to determine the impact of this chemical on bees and pollinators."

So maybe it's time for the EPA takes another look at the pesticides they allow to be used.

The bees are vital to over one-third of all of America's crops.

Save the bees!
