Yep, that’s Bee from the environmental cartoon series Hank D and the Bee. Don’t worry, he’s ok. That’s a cartoon knife.

    The plural of bee is bees, not bee's which is possessive.

    I did that on purpose to try and get comments :)

    Thanks Maria!

    Bayer's gonna be sorry when the bees all die and the corn stops reproducing. Yup, real sorry…

    And, Joe, great illustration!

    If you would like to take action go to the Pesticide Action Network North America website and submit a petition requesting the EPA put a stop to the use of clothianidin until appropriate studies can demonstrate unequivocally that this chemical is not causing problems for honey bees – just one species of important pollinator. These studies should have been done prior to registration – period.
