The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has classified clothianidin as "highly toxic" to honeybees. Clothianidin is marketed as "Poncho" by Bayer Crop Science. The chemical was approved for U.S. use in 2003 and German use in 2004.

German government researchers have concluded that a bestselling Bayer pesticide is responsible for the recent massive die-off of honeybees across the country. In response, the government has banned an entire family of pesticides, fueling accusations that pesticides may be responsible for the current worldwide epidemic of honeybee die-offs.

Two million honeybee colonies have been lost in the United States in recent years, with massive dieoffs also reported across Europe and in Taiwan, where 10 million bees recently disappeared over the course of only two weeks.

Around the world, honeybee stocks are in decline, which scientists have warned could have devastating impacts on global food supplies. A total of 80 percent of world food crops are primarily or exclusively pollinated by honeybees, amounting to 130 crops and $15 billion worth of food each year in the United States alone.

There is new evidence that the pesticide may be responsible and we want the Environmental Protection Acency to BAN its use in the United States.
