Re: bees dying the enviroment and pesticides
Why? It's called free market capitaism, which has given you your standard of living. Business, it's business. And profit, the reason to be in business. Any business has a responsibility to it's stock holders, so they do what they do best and the better they do it, the more profit they make.

And it's not just insecticides, it's fungicides and herbicides, regardless of whether it has been established that, under label stated usage, those materials effect bees or not.
It is up to each of us to be as responsible as we can be when it comes to pesticide use. And if we can, their non-use. As our organic gardener stated above. Life is tough, no one gets out of it alive.
