Ladybugs die as a result of genetic engineering 07.Feb.2006 22:57

Pauline Lind contact on website

Ladybugs have always played an important part in agriculture. The USDA has seen to the displacment of billions of our native species in favor of imports that are also doomed to die because G E crops are closing in on all countrys.
