These posts about Monsanto are uneducated. These insecticides mentioned are not genetic and in fact, are the opposite of genetic.

And this is an old theory, has been around since 2008.
Monsanto is a scourge on global agriculture. It was only reasonable to assume that the problem would be located with them.

Seems rather “CCD” is some sort of propoganda that either benefits the enviromental movement, or the honey producers, or both.
