24 Hours to Save the Bees

Quietly, globally, billions of bees are dying, threatening our crops and food. But if Bayer stops selling one group of pesticides, we could save bees from extinction.

Four European countries have begun banning these poisons, and some bee populations are already recovering. But Bayer, the largest producer of neonicotinoids, has lobbied hard to keep them on the market. Now, massive global pressure from Avaaz and others has forced them to consider the facts, and in 24 hours, Bayer shareholders will vote on a motion that could stop these toxic chemicals. Let’s all act now and shame the shareholders to stop killing bees

Been hearing about those awful pesticides for a few years now, it's strange they haven't been banned earlier. Pollination is so important.

If you are unsure of what the bees have to do with food production and crops in general, they are primarily responsible for the pollination of plants and vegetables on farms, minor and major. As you know, honey bees go from flower to flower to collect pollen, during this process "pollen is transferred in the reproduction of plants, thereby enabling fertilization and sexual reproduction."

Although plants are pollinated in other ways like wind, honeybees are a major source of plant pollination, especially on farm land. You just would not have the man power to pollinate every plant in every field as humans, therefore honey bees are necessary for food crops.
