Bee Protection

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

The Center for Food Safety enewsletter says emoticon "

Bees and other beneficial pollinators are disappearing at alarming rates. While we may not know the exact cause of the disappearance, we do know that some pesticides are contributing to their decline. But we also know there are simple things we can each do to help combat pollinator loss.

That’s why this Earth Day Center for Food Safety and Beyond Pesticides have joined forces to launch the BEE Protective Campaign, aimed at protecting honey bees and other pollinators from pesticides. Pollinators are a vital part of the environment and critical to the nation’s food production, and they’re in serious trouble. By making simple choices—such as avoiding pesticide products that contain bee-toxic neonicotinoids and choosing pollinator-friendly plants for your garden to provide forage for bees—we can all help address this crisis."

    Our entomologists put up some bee boxes in lesser traveled parts of campus and the security folks blew one up thinking they might be bombs.. a new bee balm?
Amazing.... truth is stranger than fiction....

    Bee positioning is a big business. Bee Keepers take hives all over the country because of this pronlem.

    It seams that they are only on farms that are not doing organic and don't have GMO crops near by
