An excellent read. Neonicotinoids are looking more and more like the cause of Colony Collapse Disorder. The Europeans have done studies on this and they all point to the neonics being the likely cause. In 2013 the EU banned neonics for 2 years. Why won't we do the same in North America? These neonics haven't even been approved by the EPA! Neonics are allowed to be sold under an exemption!
