CONFIRMED: Pesticides are destroying honeybee pollinators by killing workers and queens

Beekeepers weren’t too surprised when studies came out and confirmed that neonic pesticides were killing worker and queen bees.  The study published in Journal Science found that 25 percent of bees that were exposed to high levels of neonic pesticides lose their lives. Study co-author Amro Zayed from the Toronto York University said: “We found higher worker mortality, deficits in learning and memory, differences in queen and reproductive biology."
