A chemical product sprayed all over plants to kill off insects is man made? You don't say. Point I was making was it's not the pesticide that is killing them, it's the parasites. The pesticide is making them vulnerable to the parasite. I'm not going to rag on all pesticides because they have saved millions of (human) lives and because the last time I purchased an organic salad I munched down on a living beetle and saw his friends looking back at me after I stopped retching. Yet the impact of the bees dying off could be catastrophic so perhaps better regulation or what not.
But I dunno, I'd like to think I could get by with my looks and not my thoughts so don't mind me.
