It provides outstanding control of aphids, whiteflies, mealybug, Colorado potato beetle and other sucking and chewing pests.”

The pesticide is now coming home with the bee as well. They make it home and continue to spread the chemical. The Imidacloprid gradually becomes concentrated in the honey as the nectar is evaporated. This continuing contamination in the hives as well as to the individual pollinator has significantly contributed to CCD (Bierling).
The method of soil application can be considered more dangerous then foliar spraying in that it affects more then just honeybees. By contaminating the soil, the invertebrates who are importants to crops are also greatly affected. The pesticide cannot distinguish between the good and bad, therefor attacks both, including earthworms.
Earthworms are important to the soil. they make their homes by tunneling through the soil. They take dead or decaying leaves into their tunnels and eat them, helping to decompose and break down the dead materials faster. The wastes that the earthworms leave behind makes the soil more fertile. Earthworm tunnels loosen the soil to allow air, water and plant roots to move more freely through the soil (Edwards).
With the earthworms becoming contaminated, sick, and even dead, birds who feast on these creatures then are alos affected by the pesticide. Certain species of birds, such as the house sparrow, Japanese quail, canaries, and pigeons are at a greater danger than others. When these birds consume the worms with Imidacloprid, the chemical continues on into their system.
The Imidacloprid causes abnormal behavior in these birds. They lack coordination and are inable to fly. What is most devistating is the affects the ...

    Introduction From 1973 to 1987, over 22 million abortions have been performed. Pro-lifers would call that a terrible waste of human life.

    A quote by John Kerry; “Too many people in America believe that if you are pro-choice that means pro-abortion. It doesn't. I don't want abortion. Abortion should be the rarest thing in the world. I am actually personally opposed to abortion. But I don't believe that I have a right to take what is an article of faith to me and legislate it to other people. That's not how it works in America.” This quote as a whole, sums up my feelings on a debate that many of us come into contact with on a daily basis. This is the debate of pro choice vs. pro life. I also like John Kerry am pro-choice, and I do

    Abortion is defined as: "the termination of pregnancy and expulsion of an embryo or of a fetus that is incapable of survival." However, if only the debate over the abortion issue was as simple as the definition provided above.
