Should an insecticide that cuts sperm count in bees by almost 40 percent be banned?

  • Let's not spread that kind of love around

    Why we even use harmful insecticides any more is a wonder to me. Remember when there was such alarm because the honeybees and bumblebees of the world were going MIA? Knowingly spreading poison for agricultural purposes makes no sense. Sure, it may kill the thing you want killed but the long lasting effects and unintended results are not worth it.

  • Yes, the insecticide that drops bee sperm count should be banned.

    Bees are such an integral part of human life. They pollinate the plants that give us food. Lower bee sperm count means a lower bee population. A lower bee population leads to less pollination of our food crops, and ultimately means the prices of food go up due to supply and demand. This is why the insecticide that lowers bee sperm count should be banned.

  • There's no reason to disrupt the ecological balance on this planet.

    Bees play an important part in maintaining ecological balance. Without bees, lots of plants would not be fertilized and would probably die out. Harmful insecticides should absolutely be banned, scientists can work on making a new one which doesn't harm any other insects. Besides, we should work on sustainable farming practices, instead of slathering our crops in chemicals.

  • Yes, it should.

    Bees are dying at an alarming rate and they are essential for the survival of our species. Without bees many plants could not get pollinated. These plants are often major food sources for us or for other animals. We rely on bees, which is why this insecticide should be banned.
