A number of factors have been associated with pollinator declines and the losses of managed honey bees (Apis mellifera) in particular. These factors include pests, disease, nutrition, loss of habitat and, pesticides. The EPA has been working aggressively to protect bees and other pollinators from the potential effects of pesticides and has engaged a broad range of stakeholders both domestically and internationally to develop recommendations for assessing and mitigating potential risks of pesticides to bees.
