How to Stop the Killing of Beneficial Insects?
In order to stop the killing of the insects needed
to pollinate the food we eat, we need to find substitutes to the current policies of spraying poisons everywhere. (In perspective,
it is truly unbelievable that we have come to the present situation in which we poison the food, then eat it.)
are many beneficial insects, animals, and birds which eat the harmful insects that eat our crops. Among them are lacewings,
bats, and swallows. Unfortunately, the majority of these creatures have been poisoned, and their numbers severely diminished.
This is very convenient for the pharmaceutical companies, because the balance of nature has been so severely upset that the
pesticides are needed in increasing amounts to control insects whose predators have been destroyed. Fortunately, there are
companies that sell these natural predators for farmers who wish to return to a more sane way of producing food.
