Natural Gardening… Pretty Please

Butterflies and Bees? Yeah, I’ll go to bat for them. This year, I’ve noticed we have Bumble Bees but few Honeybees and almost no Butterflies. 50,000 Bumble Bees were poisoned in June in Oregon after an insecticide was sprayed on trees to control aphids, because of stickiness they cause to parked cars. The pesticide was “Safari” (dinotefuran) and belongs to a new group of chemicals called neonicotinoids, “implicated” in killing Honey Bees and possibly butterflies. I guess there are no warnings on the bottles or at the hardware store. Go natural and continue to enjoy the birds, the bees and the butterflies.
