Harvard Study on Bee colonies and exposure to neonicotinoids proceeding to colony collapse disorder

Harvard bee neonicotinoid study
Click on the link above to read the Harvard  University study on the effects of very small doses of 2 neonicotinoids, that they conclude could contribute to CCD or colony collapse disorder. This disorder is when bees, for some reason or due to some thing, disperse from the colony. When this happens the colony cannot survive long without gaining more members, and thus is more likely to die. Bees are major pollinators and without them plants do not produce food.  Please read this article to get a better understanding on the dire topic at hand about the loss of bees and how it will effect all our lives.  Get involved in bee studies at universities as a volunteer, or learn how to care for your own bee colony if you have the property for it.  Thanks for reading, and be aware and eat with care 🙂
