Pesticides Could be a Major Reason for CCD

CCD, also known as Colony Collapse Disorder has been the cause for mass bee deaths around the world. Many people may despise bees, but those tiny pollinators play a key role in nature. No one is sure what is the cause for CCD, but scientists have many theory. One theory is cell phone signals, which interfere in a bees locating system. But scientists have found a new theory. Pesticides might be the main cause for CCD. Pesticides kill many bugs. Seems likely that this might be the key reason of CCD. A special chemical in pesticides called Neonicotinoid is the main culprit. We must be careful to protect nature's key pollinator, or the Earth may face consequences.
