  •  Bayer Crop Science is the company responsible (5+ / 0-)

    for the production of system pesticides known as NeoNicotinoids. These are the chemicals that are known to be the primary factor in Colony  Collapse Disorder, which is not only killing our honey bees and our bumble bees, worldwide, but also ground dwelling bees as well, because it persists in the soil and spreads in the soil to untreated plants, to become exuded by their vascular system via the pollen, nectar and guttation.

    This chemical suppresses the immune system of pollinators, especially bees, and causes them to die after carrying massive pathogen loads.

    Sadly Bayer makes big bucks, and could afford to end this chemical reign of terror, but they don't. They are no better than Goldman Sachs, or that other vampire squid, Bank of America. In fact when they make the seed treatment, they get the chemical that makes the neonicotinoids stick to the seeds from Monsanto.

    So it doesn't surprise me that the this company is making ideological whoopee with the likes of Flush. Turds of a feather if you ask me.
