Insects and lies
There is evidence that neonicotinoids marketed by the likes of Bayer, Syngenta and Monsanto (of genetic modification fame) are killing bees...Yes, of course its not ALL farmers who use this kind of stuff, but many do - and so do many ordinary gardeners. We've reached a point where its seen as 'normal' to use poisons in farming and gardening. Look at the common use of slug pellets ...and when did you last see a thrush ? I find it laughable (and of course very sad) that humans see themselves as so separate from nature that they think its fine to soak the planet in poisons - whilst assuming it won't affect them!
