Honey Bees are dying at an alarming rate, and this winter marked the worst losses by far. U.S. beekeepers reported that as much as 50% of their bees disappeared or died.
Last week, the European Union took a major step to protect our bee population – placing a two year ban on the thought to be responsible – but the U.S. is still finding excuses for inaction. With the health of our bee populations – and the estimated $15 billion in agricultural benefits they provide on the line – it’s time for the EPA to stop ignoring the science, and follow the EU’s lead.
