Pollinator Recommendations Deliver A Sting

bee-on-sunflower1.jpg

The thousands of bees that died in Oregon a couple of summers ago did not die in vain. 

The die-off, a result of pesticide use, increased awareness of both the value of bees (and other pollinators) and the perils of ignorance in chemical use. 

The Xerces Society and other groups that want more protections for pollinators hailed the formation of a task force to make recommendations to the legislature. 

The task force recently presented its work, and Xerces is less than pleased. 

We hear the recommendations and the reactions.
