Nearly all of the corn grown in the United States has been treated with a class of pesticides linked to the collapse of honeybees, other pollinators and perhaps entire ecosystems.

This means that bees foraging anywhere near a cornfield are likely being exposed to toxins that have been shown to damage their nervous and immune systems.

According to, the treated cornfields are causing the concerning bee die-off. They write, “Beekeepers from Minnesota to Ohio to Canada report large losses after their hives forage near treated cornfields.”

“Honey bees are caught in the crossfire,” said Steve Ellis, owner of Old Mill Honey Co. “Honey bees, like mine, are subjected to increasingly toxic load of pesticides in corn fields. It’s time to rethink the use of neonicotinoids and provide farmers with better options that allow all of us to prosper.”
