What about GM products, they are just as dangerous to the survival of this planet?

Add my name to the petition. I hope the South African government will take heed.

No bees - no flowers, no honey, no food and no life.
Louis van Niekerk - RSA
If the bees die, this will start off the collapse of the food chain that we are a part of. At this point, having all the money in the world wouldn't save any of us. Their collapse would be our own collapse. The human race would die.
kristofer Klement - Canada
Let us act coordinated in order to save the bees across the whole of Europe.
Simon Jonsson - Luleň, Sweden, SNF-Norrbotten
Bees, and their cousins the bumblebee, hornets, yellow jackets and so on may seem to be pests because of their feisty natures - but they are all necessary for the production of food for our planet and not just in Europe.
Policies regarding BT GMO crops (which are also killing our soils as well as allowing greater pesticide use), as well as pesticide use for both food and ornamental agriculture, will have a direct impact on food production world-wide.
Hopefully, our politicians will rule against chemical pesticides and stop the reaearch, developement and growth of GMO crops. If they don't, all of us may wake up one day and seriously wonder "what's for dinner".
Al Metcalf - Canada
Save the bees, save nature. We need them more than you would want to believe.
Jan Dierick - Leuven, Belgium
We need to do all we can to help save our bees. Listen to what the bees are saying to use. They are in need of our help.
Sophie Christopher- Bowes - Abingdon
There are many possibles causes for bees in trouble. Pesticides but also a lack of food (monocultures, herbicides), diseases, beebreeding and climate change.
Martha - Netherlands
What's the EU 2020 Biodiversity Strategy policy on ecosystem services? Isn't crop pollination one of these services? We should develop wisely. We must protect biodiversity if we are to protect ourselves - biodiversity and health are two faces of the same coin.
Ana - Portugal
We should be very cautious about allowing these pesticides to be used even on crops that are not visited by honey bees, since there are many species of wild bees that visit plants the honey bees do not (such as bumble-bees that visit potato flowers).
Wild bees are also in decline and just as important as crop pollinators - the bumble bee, for example is the main pollinator of outdoor tomato crops (and covered ones if they have access). Insect pollination is far too important economically for us to play russian roulette with it.
Nick Symons - Paphos, Cyprus, Terra Cypria
Real science is required. Surely it is not okay to continue these endless rounds of debates. Yes, of course, the 'industry' will claim there is no connection - make them prove it first and always, and in future before products are permitted out in the fields.
If preliminary results from the countries which have restrictions and bans are good results, then go with the good results and keep testing? As uncommon as common sense is, we really must begin to practice it. Save the bees, the pesticide industries will take care of themselves.

Honey bees are not the only pollinators to be affected by these pesticides. Bumble bees, solitary bees and a host of other pollinating insects are being damaged. Dont put profits before biodiversity.
Derek West - Norwich, UK
Thank-you to Chris Davies MEP and Alyn Smith MEP for speaking up for bees. Bayer's nicotinoid dressing (used on rape seed flowers) is highly toxic for bees.
We must stop this.
Patrycja Paula Dziadowiec - Ladispoli
Use natural, no chemicals.
Felix - Netherlands
No bees means no flowers, no honey, no food and no future.
MiaQuittman - Malibu, Califorina
To whom it concerns. Let's work together and stop the destruction of the honey bee and all life on our fragile planet.
david brown - Alexandria, VA, USA
Just stop poisoning the bees now.
Val Randle - Bromyard, UK
Let us continue to be concerned about the "bee detail." Our environment depends on saving the bees.
Arlene Oswald - Asbury Park, NJ, USA
We lost a lot of berries and apples in the garden.
No poison, please. As an organic farmer.
Eeva-Riitta Sorvali - Lappeenranta, Finland
Iam very pleased to see finally some action. Without the bees, there will be no food. We need them, they are harmless insects that do not sting you if you don't bother them. I can sit for hours observing their hive.
And I think that if all humanity learned to work in comminities, like the bees, instead of working alone - this world would definitely be a better place to live. We need to safe these magnificent insects before its to late.
cecilia - Ficksburg Free-state, South-Africa
Stop killing our bees, have profits made you F forget that bees are our lifeline?
Amanda - United States
Without bees, the food supply will diminish or disappear. Stop the destruction of our our planet and humanity.
John Ball - Cfntennial, USA
Add my name to the petition. I expect the involved companies to understand that everyone's life - in our generation and the future ones - is at stake.

We are being infected by the west. In Nepal, rural areas don't have the access to biolical manure and pesticides, and the growth is low but we are adopting you real fast. It's controversial.
Natanrai - Gaight, Nepal
They are quietly killing our bees and the EPA is helping them do it.
Bill - USA
We can't live without the bees but we can sure as hell live without Syngenta and Bayer, even Monsanto for that matter.
Jim - USA
The bee population requires enhancement not further risk. Ban chemicals harmful to their existence.
Tom Walters - New Zealand
Please add my name to the petition and list, we are Australians living in central Vietnam where we still see daily the effects of toxic agents on the community, their food and lifestock (40 years on). Let's rally people.
Kerre Burley Hoi
I want help.
Juana Corrales - Ciudadela de Menorca, Islas Baleares
Why is no one researching the increasing numbers in our spider populations that our poor bees are being caught in their webs in all our gardens and countreyside fields. It's not pesticide's killing the humble bee, it's the spiders.
As we no longer have enough birds to keep them under control. The food chain is broken and spiders have no enemy's anymore (they are the culprit), go look in your gardens and see for yourself. I counted at least ten trapped and dead last year in my garden alone.
