Your Call: Bees and pesticides
On the February 1st edition Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about bees. Since 2006, honey bees and other pollinators have experienced rapid population declines.
According to a recent EPA report, an insecticide that’s widely used on fruit, vegetable, grain, and other crops in the US “potentially poses risk to hives when the pesticide comes in contact with certain crops that attract pollinators.” Now that we know this, what’s next? How can we save the bees? Join the conversation, on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
