Read the two-part article, by authors Marilyn Steiner and Stephen Goodwin, shining a light on how neonicotinoid pesticides are causing devastation not only to the honey bees, but also ladybirds and other pollinators and invertebrates, such as birds and even earthworms are at risk:

Ladybirds are nature’s own pest controllers.
Earthworms aerate and enrich the soil.
If we let nature take its course, it will do the work for us.
