Not only are insecticides bad for you, your children, your pets, and the environment, they may be contributing to Bee Colony Collapse Disorder.
In North America, Colony Collapse Disorder has wiped out over 10 million bee colonies since 2007.
“More than $30 billion worth of crops in the U.S. could be seriously at risk if the continuing die off of honeybees were to reach critical levels.” – US News and World Report
What can you do about Colony Collapse Disorder?
The USDA recommends that “The best action the public can take to improve honey bee survival is not to use pesticides indiscriminately” – from http://www.ars.usda.gov/news/docs.htm?docid=15572#public
So don’t spray pesticides, have us spray garlic instead!
