On 6/20/2014, President Obama initiated a nationwide "Pollinator Health Task Force" that is dedicated to combating the severe losses sustained by honey bees and other major pollinators. In a Presidential Memorandum released by the Office of the Press Secretary, the President calls on the EPA to reassess the use of dangerous pesticides with a focus on their affect on pollinators. Tell the EPA to take this presidential mandate seriously and ban the use of deadly pesticides!

It's long been known that Earth's honey bee population is decreasing at an alarming rate. The fact is, much of our natural ecosystem depends on the processes involved with bee pollination, and if this pollination cannot happen, many of our crops — from broccoli to strawberries — will be in grave peril.

In fact, honey bee deaths are reaching a critical point, whereby it may not be possible to reverse the damage. The good news is that much of the population decline can be attributed to reversible human actions, including the use of neonicotinoids, insecticides chemically related to nicotine that cause honeybees, bumblebees, and beneficial ladybugs to literally drop dead.

We can afford insects eating our plant life; but we simply cannot afford a decimation of the honey bee. Write to the EPA asking that these immensely harmful pesticides are outlawed.

Dear Deputy Administrator Bob Perciasepe:

If we don't act now to save Earth's honey bee population, we could reach a critical point of no return. You see, the planet's honey bees have been in steady decline for several years now — climate change, parasites, habitat loss are all contributors. Some of these issues are going to be difficult to tackle, but there's one catalyst that humans can act on right now.

Bees are dying in large numbers as a result of the use of certain neonicotinoids to treat our crops over the past decade. Previously thought to be non-toxic to these precious pollinators, more recent peer-reviewed studies have linked the proliferation of neonicotinoids to a decrease in queen production and an increase in "disappeared" bees, the ones that never return to the hive from their foraging trips.

While insect pests are detrimental to our crops, the loss of our honey bees would be catastrophic. We can handle some less-than-ideal produce. But we can't handle a total decimation of our food supply as a result of lack of bee pollination.

You have the power to save our nation's food supply. Don't let this opportunity slip away: outlaw the use of the neonicotinoids killing our honey bees.

May 23, 2015 Jerry Evans We need to be focused not on killing pests immediately, but how we can do it where other species cannot be killed. Honeybees are man's best friend when it comes to crops, and we are killing them. It needs to stop, if we wanna survive as a species.

May 23, 2015 Janet Menasian If we want to continue eating normally we must save the pollinators of that food. We simply cannot continue to indiscriminately kill insects unaware of the consequences. If you like a variety of good foods you must pay attention to the bee's plight.
