Evidence Piles Up for Popular Pesticides' Link to Pollinator Problems

For a long time people have been saying that neonicotinoids are responsible for the declines in various pollinator populations, especially honeybees. Now a new study has found that butterflies of Northern California may also be experiencing population declines because of neonicotinoids, as reported by Science News. The evidence shows that, "Individual butterfly species in areas with higher pesticide use experienced the steepest declines."

TOO TOXIC: This is just the latest in a long line of studies which have shown that neonicotinoid pesticides are too toxic to use. Believe it or not, chances are that you already have pesticides in YOUR body. Previous research has shown that 9 in 10 Americans are contaminated with pesticides. What's also alarming is that no one knows what health effects such exposures are causing, but there's reason to believe that even low-level exposures commonly found in food may be harmful. Thankfully, one of the benefits of eating organic is that the foods will be free of GE ingredients, and this is key to avoiding exposure to toxic Roundup ingredients. Additionally, there are many things you can do to avoid harming bees and other helpful pollinators that visit your garden.
