Honey Bee Down

SHELL and BAYER -- what have you Done?

[Picture/MEME from faceBook] Does this photo get your attention?

Honey bees are having a really hard time getting back on the bus. Technology, no matter how well thought out, still destroys nature. And in this case technology destroys natural selection. We need bees, we need them bad.

37 Million Bees Found Dead in Elmwood Canada | REALfarmacy.com | Healthy News and Information: "“Once the corn started to get planted our bees died by the millions,” Schuit said. He and many others, including the European Union, are pointing the finger at a class of insecticides known as neonicotinoids, manufactured by Bayer CropScience Inc. used in planting corn and some other crops. (Jon Radojkovic. Wednesday, June 19, 2013. HERE )"

The development of this class of insecticides began with work in the 1980s by Shell and the 1990s by Bayer.

Neonicotinoids, "first new class of insecticides introduced in the last 50 years, and the neonicotinoid imidacloprid is currently the most widely used insecticide in the world." Is it time to ban this class of insecticide?
  • Neonicotinoids work their way into pollen and nectar of flowering plants and trees, substances that are consumed by honey bees. 
  • Neonicotinoids can persist in soils long after only one application. Some residual has been measured from woody plants up to six years after application.
  • The European Union just recently voted to ban these insecticides for two years, beginning December 1, 2013, to be able to study how it relates to the large bee kill they are experiencing there also.
The LINK'd story traces the application of insecticides using newer air seeders, sending the insecticide airborne. Hopes are that all interested parties can get together and talk about the reason bees, the prime pollinators of so any different plant species, are dying.

Please read this article "Are Neonicotinoids Killing Bees?" If you only read the Summary at the beginning, you can pass along the information to others. The plight of our way of life on earth is in the details.

Interesting and depressing news about the future of our bees; we cannot afford to lose these creatures!
That said, I find the picture of the wing-wearing girl in short-shorts to be sexist and un-called-for.
