Posted on 03/16/2012 7:27:42 AM PDT by nuconvert
What was killing all those honeybees in recent years? New research shows a link between an increase in the death of bees and insecticides, specifically the chemicals used to coat corn seeds.
The study, titled "Assessment of the Environmental Exposure of Honeybees to Particulate Matter Containing Neonicotinoid Insecticides Coming from Corn Coated Seeds," was published in the American Chemical Society's Environmental Science & Technology journal, and provides insight into colony collapse disorder.

to quote Glenn Beck: “Only the bees know”
Have you ever been bit by a dead bee? From “To Have and Have Not”
Sounds like an X Files movie.......
About a hundred times.... :-)
This is why we must not buy genetically engineered crops. Monsanto & the Obama Admin are up to some very evil stuff.
They sure have messed with things that shouldn’t have been messed with
Genetically modified food/seeds should be banned.
I’ve been praying for answers to this problem. So much of our food supply depends on these magnificent little workers. Thank God the scientists are getting somewhere with their research.
The dumb kid in the back of the room has a question? Since the seed and the coating is put in the ground and covered up and where it rots and the corn grows up, has someone started a new line of digger honey bees. Do they have little shovels and miner lamps? Has honey got clay in it?
Didn’t they already prove that their hive collapse was due to a virus or fungus, or parasite or something? I could have sworn they had made that determiniation years ago now.
Your answer in the next post, but actually what has been killing bees??? Do you want to know, can you stand the truth, http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Varroa_destructor
Yes, next post, you treat it with http://www.ent.uga.edu/bees/disorders/Terramycin.html
“Didnt they already prove that their hive collapse was due to a virus or fungus, or parasite or something?”
I seem to remember reading that too. But maybe that was just a theory?
Did anyone really ever question but that the culprit would ultimately prove to be Monsanto?
It’s not the GMO’s so much as the “why” they GM’d it in the first place.
They made it so that the plant could be saturated in roundup without killing the plant.
Then we eat the roundup. 100 million pounds a year.
Gd created the bee, without whom we could not survive. Man is given the choice: create good or create evil. GMO with insecticides and pesticides is us using Gd’s earth to make evil.
And this is an old theory, has been around since 2008.
They are magnificent indeed. I have been stung, but still love and respect them. A stingered society is a polite society!
