Tobacco producers, faced with declining sales of their deadly products, are looking for new markets. Nicotine, the active ingredient in tobacco, is a natural insecticide that the plant uses against leaf eating beetles. Using their crop of genetically enhanced tobacco, which produces more of addictive nicotine, tobacco farmers can distill the natural insecticide and synthesize new "Organic" bug killers.
When these Neonicotinoids, which attack the nervous system, are sprayed upon other crops, like apples, the bees and other bugs that pollinate and feed upon such crops are poisoned. In their body, the toxic poison is concentrated, and when mammals, like bats, eat these poisoned bugs, they get a bigger dose, which attacks their central nervous system.
We humans know how this sinister class of nicotine poisons is both highly addictive and destroys our immune systems. In other mammals, like bats, the effect is to weaken their immune systems allowing natural parasites, like the white fungus, to multiply and kill them in mass.
United States Fish and Wildlife Service - something is killing our bats.
New 'organic' pesticides are killing off our bats, and this will cause an increase in the pests these bats usually eat. These pests will eat our crops, and spread disease. The only way to correct this imbalance is to stop the use of these deadly Neonicotinoids.
