Last week Meg and I rented Vanishing Bees from our local library. It was very eye opening to us on the loss of honey bees (CCD) across the world. If you have not seen please do.
This documentary points toward pesticide use, from what I have read mostly used on sunflowers and corn. Here is an article about what they did about it in Germany.
Our government is doing nothing to ban these pesticides like Germany and France several years ago. One thing we can do is save the bees with our forks. We can do this by growing our own fruits and vegetables. Buying our organic produce at the local farmers markets and food co ops.
