Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) continues to be a major problem for the honey bee, our most important pollinator. Species of bumble bees in California are dwindling in numbers and some may go extinct. Bumble bees in Illinois are being surveyed to determine whether there is a similar local problem. Although these and other threats to our pollinators appear to be caused by several factors, recent research point to some insecticides as being more than just a minor part of the problem. Non-technical summaries of this research will be presented along with other impacts to our insect pollinators and an overview of the various pollinators.
