    A pesticide called Clothianidin is potentially killing bees and threatening our food supply. In 48 hours an EPA consultation on whether to suspend the use of this toxic pesticide will close. Let's seize this opportunity to save the bees and flood the EPA with public support to stop these pesticides! Send an urgent message to the EPA now:

    I was just reading about zombie bees.Shame they are getting attack by parasites and pesticides. I still see them around my place.People don't realise we get a large percentage of foods for their pollination work.

    What was decided? I don't have much hope the government will do the right thing.Big business IS the government.Been that way for a long time now.Looking the other way in many many areas once they get *lobbied* the right amount of cash.
