Whooaaaaaahhh….this is HUGE!!!
It was announced yesterday that “Ortho plans to phase out neonicotinoids by 2021” found in 8 different products that help control garden pests and diseases. Scientist believe that neonicotinoids are just one of the reasons for the falling bee populations. Bees are SO incredibly important to us globally because they pollinate a HUGE portion of the fruits and veggies that we consume every day!
SO maybe… just maybe we’ll see the return of Buzz The Bee on the Cheerios cereal box sooner rather than later. The company had removed the beloved mascot to highlight issues, including this one, facing the bee population.
Give Bees a chance 🙂
