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.
Many bee-keepers have turned to high-fructose corn syrup to feed their bees. High-fructose corn syrup is made from Monsanto's genetically engineered corn and that corn is treated with Bayer's neonicotinoid insecticides. Thanks to wankers at Monsanto, Bayer, and the EPA, we are teetering on the brink of an international disaster - the collapse of our food chain. http://news.mongabay.com/2012/0405-hance_colonycollapse_pesticides.html
