TV News Story - Bee Kills in Oregon

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

This TV news story explains how more than a dozen pesticides are now banned in Oregon after 50,000 bees were found dead in a Target store parking lot. The bees were killed at the Target store in Wilsonville in mid-June. Pesticide poisoning from a product known as Safari caused the bumblebee deaths, officials said, and that product is one of several now banned by the state. A week after the Wilsonville bee deaths, hundreds of bees were also found dead around a tree in Hillsboro.
