Not going to do any good as it is GMOs are the cause. We've had many pesticides including DDT.

The only good news to come out of the Soviet E.U. since it's formation. Only a two year ban though, does this mean that the bees are going to be destroyed anyway after the ban is lifted.The Swiss manufacturer says that there isn't enough proof that it kills bees. Perhaps we should spray it all over their lunchboxes and office seats every day for a couple of years and see how many of them survive. The real lunatics are definitely all outside the asylum.
