There’s another problem for bees, bumble bees and butterflies looming on the horizon, and that the merger of two large corporations, Bayer (the bee slayer) and Monsanto (the Butterfly-Killer. The treat to pollinators, such as bees and butterflies, would be due to even more crops sprayed with pesticides by this mega-corporation. Furthermore, this merger makes this the largest seed and pesticide company in the world, “giving them un precedented control over our food supply,” according to Friends of the Earth. If other large scale chemical corporations such as Dow and Dupont, for example, follow suit, control over are food supply could reach 75%.
