It is the responsibility of the Environmental Protection Agency to ensure that the Earth is safe. They are doing a terrible job, as they have allowed Bayer to continue in their selling of the harmful pesticide. There is always a danger when it comes to using chemicals in order to keep pests away from crops, but neonicotinoids are one of the worst. All over the world, bees are dying off because of them. Already, some species have even become extinct. WIthout bees, humans everywhere will suffer, as our crops start to fail. WIthout the bees being there to pollinate them, plants will start to die as well, causing ecosystems to fail. We need the bees, and neonicotinoids are a toxin that will be the catalyst for their extinction.
