Bees help pollinate around 70% of all the crops on the planet. If all the bees die & nothing rises to replace them (another type of insect, for example, or serious human intervention), many plants will simply die-off due to lack of pollination. If 70% of the plants on the plan disappear, then this would lead to the disappearance of certain animal species. . . including mankind.

Members of the community in Redlands, CA swarmed their local Lowe's store to deliver a dozen Halloween cards to urge the retail giant to stop selling bee-killing products and plants pre-treated with the chemicals.
This Lowe's customer pledged to take the Bee Safe Neighborhood pledge and not use systemic bee-killing pesticides or pre-treated plants in their backyard. They join hundreds in taking the pledge, which means they won't be shopping at Lowe's. Photographer: Greg Robinson
