"Tell the EPA to ban Bayer's toxic pesticide clothianidin"

In an article in Honey-Bee News.com dated January 23, 2011 it states: "Remember the case of the leaked document showing that the EPA’s own scientists are concerned about a pesticide it approved that might harm fragile honeybee populations? Well, it turns that the EPA isn’t the only government agency whose researchers are worried about neonicotinoid pesticides. USDA researchers also have good evidence that these nicotine-derived chemicals, marketed by German agrichemical giant Bayer, could be playing a part in Colony Collapse Disorder—the mysterious massive honeybee die-offs that United States and Europe have been experiencing in recent years. So why on earth are they still in use on million of acres of American farmland?" (Source: http://www.honeybee-news.com/)

The health of the honey bees effects each and every living creature, large and small, existing on the planet.   Dangerous pesticides are still being used that are not only killing off the bee population, but could also have a detrimental effect on human health. Traces of these deadly chemicals could be winding up in our food supply, in the air we breath, and in the water supply.
