( - p.mc.n. ) It’s no longer a mystery. We know what’s killing the bees. They’re being poisoned by neonicotinoid insecticides, manufactured by Bayer and Syngenta. Why do we care? Of the 100 crop species that provide 90 percent of the world's food, over 70 are pollinated by bees. No bees, no pollination. No food.
These thankless, tireless pollinators do so much more for our food supply than just make money. We owe it to them, and to our world, to protect them so they can keep doing their job and we can continue to enjoy the fruits of their labor. Without them, we would very likely starve!
