Good News for Bees: The European Union Voted to Ban Neonics.

10 Comments

The European Union has passed a ban on pesticides considered lethal to bees. Neonicotinoids or “neonics” have been linked to the drastic decline in bee populations in recent years. Bees are important as pollinators for the majority of our fruits and vegetables. Without bees, we would have no broccoli, asparagus, blueberries, cantaloupes, cucumbers, pumpkins, watermelons, almonds, apples, cranberries, and cherries, just to name a few of the treasures we owe to bees.

This National Geographic article explains more about the ban of neonics and why this is good news.

The following video provides more information about efforts to save the bees.

 

Bees are a blessing in the grand design of our ecosystem.

We need the bees and they need our protection.

  1. This is a great and positive move by the EU. We need to be more aware of environment and how we are daily messing up the eco-system. Thank you, JoAnna. πŸ’š 🐝
    Two weeks ago, I liked the story on Sunday Morning about a man in Nigeria who needed money and how it turned out someone on FB was requested. The two developed a conversation and the gist was if the man could and him a sunset photo then he would send him money. The man sent rough photos of a sunset over the internet. Then, the US man (Ben) sent him a new camera. The Neddy man sent enough photos to be made into a pamphlet which he sold and surprisingly made $1000! He then sent the Nigerian all the money saying he must show giving half away. The man gave away shoes, backpacks, school supplies and finally Ben took CBS Sunday Morning crew to travel and meet this man. The man had put a metal roof on his home, for his family of many children and wife. It made me cry, since Ben didn’t have to give this “beggar” a chance and he transformed his small town!

    • What a wonderful story! I think I saw something about that but didn’t follow up on reading it, so I’m really glad to get the most important parts from you. It shows how one thing leads to another and how many lives can be touched by generosity. Thank you so much for sharing this, Robin! Goodness is all around. us. ❀
