BEE UPDATE: Two new studies, published last week, add to the growing mountain of scientific evidence linking neonicotinoid pesticides (neonics) with the huge declines we’ve been seeing in bee populations.

Although this is a very serious problem, it is something that the average person can help to solve. Anyone with some space in their lawn or garden can plant milkweed to help reverse the trend that Monsanto started.Below are some PDF guides which give you step by step instructions on how to plant milkweed and create habitats for monarch butterflies:Planting Native Milkweed Species

Last week, we reported on a new study that implicated Monsanto in the sharp decline in monarch butterfly populations in recent years.

According to the report, Monsanto’s herbicide has wiped out 99 percent of milkweed in corn and soybean fields in the US Midwest since 1999.

This has resulted in a decline of nearly 90 percent in monarch butterfly populations in the past 20 years.

Without the milkweed, the butterfly’s food supply is entirely cut out because caterpillars eat only milkweed plants, and then milkweed is needed again when it is time for the butterfly to lay their eggs.
