Herbicides were created to kill weeds with the idea that it would benefit agriculture. Unfortunately, many of these agro-chemicals negatively impact everything else that is exposed to them.

“Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) has been devastating honeybee colonies across much of the country and world during the past few years.  There have been many theories about the cause of this calamity.  More and more the research is leaning toward insecticides as the cause.  Perhaps this is not quite in the right direction to which we should be looking.  Perhaps we should be looking at Round-Up, which presently is the most commonly used herbicide in the world. “ Terrence Ingram
