This is an ongoing project of the Genetic Engineering Action Team. The evidence now points to neonicotinoid seed coatings as an important cause of Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) which is causing a massive die-off of bees. Neonicotoids are persistent, synthetic, nicotine-like pesticides which have recently been introduced as seed coatings. They enter the growing plant, and are present in water droplets on leaves and pollen in flowers in toxic amounts. We're demanding that EPA ban neonic seed coatings.
