Worth billions of dollars economically and so much more in inherent value, pollinators like birds, bats, bees, butterflies and beetles are responsible for much of our food and many of our beautiful spring flowers. But tragically they're also being poisoned by our overuse of toxic pesticides.
The Environmental Protection Agency has just released a report finally acknowledging that neonicotinoids may be harming bees. But the report is deeply flawed, looking only at impacts of neonics on honeybees and entirely ignoring their impacts on more than 4,000 species of native bees, not to mention birds, bats, butterflies and beetles.
The EPA needs to fix its report to address these impacts. Even more importantly, it must act to protect our pollinators from dangerous pesticides.
