According to recent reports, the rise in honey bee deaths caused by neonicotinoid, a toxic agricultural pesticide, is centered around U.S. authorities allowing and approving the poisonous substances use. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved of a neonicotinoid known as sulfoxaflor back in May and its use is known to have aggravated the honey bees’ death toll.

While the European Union has banned neonicotinoids from being used, the U.S. continues to approve the harmful substances that are known to cause sudden deaths of entire beehives. The phenomenon, known as Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), has already killed off 10 million beehives.

Over half a decade later since the discovery of CCD, it has been estimated that $2 billion worth of beehives have been killed off due to the deadly pesticides.

Despite efforts from environmental and food safety groups, the EPA continues to allow neonicotinoids. However, lawsuits from environmental agencies are trying to invoke the US Endangered Species Act (ESA) that will help ensure the bees safety. In a legal brief filed this December, Center for Food Safety and other groups stated:

“EPA inadequately considered, or ignored entirely, sulfoxaflor’s harm to pollinators and the significant costs that harm will impose on the agricultural economy, food security, and natural ecosystems.”

While the EPA has not made any official comments about the lawsuit, they have stated they are abiding by regulations and standards that have been set and believe their actions have nothing to do with the increase in honey bee deaths.
