Bees and pesticides don't mix

Pesticides and other agchemicals can still be a factor for the disappearing of bees that started last year, according to this article from ICIS News.

In a House subcommittee hearing, scientists from the US Department of Agriculture still can't determined the cause of the disappearing bee colonies epidemic but said that they have not yet ruled out chemicals.

Whether the problem is from chemicals or other reasons, I hope they find the cause soon because if this continues, it will be a catastrophe to consumers who are already suffering from food price hikes.
