Chemicals at fault for bee die-off

Letter: Meryl Kastin Kooskia

This is in response to a letter a couple of weeks ago wondering about the lack of honeybees.

Honeybees are dying at an alarming rate due to the deluge of highly toxic pesticides being used. These agrochemicals are not only being doused over millions of acres of farmland, but they are also used in our neighborhood for lawns and gardens.

Although the EPA concedes that these chemicals are “highly toxic to bees,” they are choosing to wait five years to review the impacts on bee colonies.
