While there are several factors threatening the health of pollinators, there is an overwhelming amount of scientific evidence linking plummeting pollinator populations to pesticide use and illustrating the far reaching impacts that toxic synthetic pesticides have on a wide range of environments. For instance, neonicotinoids—a highly toxic class of systemic insecticides—are a leading culprit in bee declines. Scientists have also linked the endangerment of monarch butterflies to the destruction of milkweed habitat as a result of widespread glyphosate use on genetically engineered crops. Fortunately, there are solutions. Organic is a form of agriculture that is not only good for the planet, but good for pollinators too!
