Plant Science and Entomology: Should Neonicitinoids be banned?

Neonicotinoids have been banned in Europe for their suspected linkage to colony collapse disorder. Two recent scientific studies found in the New York Times point to these pesticides as harmful to bees, even at low levels. However, here in the United States, a study indicates there is not enough evidence to support banning neonicotinoids. This study feels that several factors; for example, low genetic diversity, parasites and pesticides all play a role in colony collapse disorder. An excellent TED talk can be found here that discusses one theory of Colony Collapse Disorder.

You are to construct a well-composed essay on the following topic: Should the United States follow the European Union and ban Neonicitinoids? Or is the EU ban considered too far reaching? You must choose a side and argue that side.

Consider the following prompts:

How important are bees to our livelihood?

How many crops are pollinated by bees?

Would your life be affected if the bees were to disappear?

What are some of your favorite foods that would no longer be present if pollination were to go away?
