ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the death of a large number of bees in the U.S. over the past five years. During this period, nearly 30 percent of bees in the U.S. have either disappeared or failed to survive to pollinate flowers in the spring season. Activists say that an insecticide called neonicotinoids is responsible for the death of bees. Several groups have demanded that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ban the insecticide.
