Neonicotinoid Pesticides are Largely Responsible for Bee Population Decline

“America’s agricultural landscape is now 48 times more toxic to honeybees, and likely other insects, than it was 25 years ago, almost entirely due to widespread use of so-called neonicotinoid pesticides.”

“Neonics” are responsible for 92 percent of this increased toxicity.”

“The good news is that we don’t need neonics,” Kendra Klein says. “We have four decades of research and evidence that agroecological farming methods can grow our food without decimating pollinators.” (Link)
