    Any day now, the White House Pollinator Health Task Force is expected to announce its federal strategy regarding the Obama administration’s plan to protect America’s endangered pollinators.

    For nearly a decade, honey bees across the U.S. have experienced an alarming decline in numbers, with massive bee die-offs being reported by American honey producers and in the media.

    So far, the White House task force has not focused one of the primary threats to bees and other pollinators: pesticide exposure!

    Last year, an international study found that the most widely used class of nerve-targeting insecticides called neonicotinoids or “neonics” are a widespread toxic chemical in the environment and a leading cause of bees and pollinator die-offs.
