A group of bee keepers have signed a petition asking EPA to ban a pesticide they believe is responsible for massive bee deaths. Center for Food Safety attorney Peter Jenkins tells host Bruce Gellerman the agency has failed to regulate a chemical they know is dangerous to bees.

Lastly, USDA scientist Jeffrey Pettis talks about the latest research on bee colony collapse disorder.
