Happy new year everyone.
Hope you all had a great Christmas & your bees are tucked up with plenty of stores.
I Picked this up at the natural beekeeping forum.
I am convinced that the future of the honey bee not only lies with the learning of natural beekeeping practices but by controlling the environment which they live in.
Neonicotinoid insecticides are probably the greatest threat to bees & all other pollinators out there at present.
I don't think there is any doubt now that they are the primary cause of CCD.
They arrived on the scene just before CCD, & CCDs incidence is higher in those countries that use the most neonics.
There are now many peer reviewed scientific papers that are pointing the finger in the agrochemical direction.
The BBKA endorse & take money from agrochemical companies.
Some would say it's hush money, myself included.
So please follow the link below & add your name & comment if you wish.
We owe it to the bees.Link to natural beekeeping forum
