    It will be very interesting how this one pans out. Ill be watching,

    It said five environmental groups joining the effort, so my question, is this about the bees or is this about "anti chemical" going against chemical with the mask of the bees ?

    just for the record, it wouldnt hurt my feelings if they quit using this stuff.
    but bringing back the crop dusters does not do us any justice either

    this is about the bees.
    These bee keepers like Steve Ellis and Jeff Anderson have been at this for years. spending countless hours for the sake of saving the bees.
    A law suit of this extent may need more than just a few crazy beekeepers.

    maybe they will achieve the right angle at the issue going after the government instead of targeting the companies themselves

    Only government has the power to do anything about this. And a good lawsuit can goose EPA into doing its job.
