How Pesticides Kill Bees

More studies explore how pesticides kill bees.  In some ways this is complicated, such as how chemicals behave once released into the wild.  But in the most fundamental way, it is very simple: poisons kill things.  No matter how safe people claim a toxin is, it's still a toxin and that tends to cause problems.  Here's another thing that's very simple: bees pollinate about one-third of the human food supply, including almost all the high-value fruits and vegetables. We are fortunate that many staples are wind-pollinated, but let's face it: if the bees die, a great many humans will follow.  So let's hope the idiot humans can learn faster than Coyote and his anus.
