IN THE winter of 2006 beekeepers in America noticed something odd—lots of their hives were dying for no obvious reason.
Evidence is growing that commonly used pesticides, even when employed carefully, are bad for bees.
(It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that as bees move from flower to flower they are gathering more and more of these toxic chemicals. Their little immune systems can't handle it and this weakness makes them vulnerable to all sorts of viruses and illness)
