Dead Bee’s – Monsanto Genetically Engineered Seeds Killing Off Honeybees

Back in the news.. It’s alarming…More honey bee’s are dying people… It’s Mosanto and the evil GMO crops to blame…

Recent studies on epidemic death rates among honeybees are beginning to point fingers at genetically modified seeds produced by Monsanto. In 2012, an epidemic swept through commercial bee colonies killing up to 50% of the nations’ bee colonies used to pollinate crops for farmers. Among the hardest hit are almond growers in California, who saw their bee colonies nearly decimated over the winter. While hives looked to be healthy last fall, there was a near-catastrophic die off of honeybees over the winter.

While it is hard to say if the mass die-off is solely due to genetically altered seeds and not drought or fungal issues, European scientists have linked bee epidemics to neonicotinoids, which are incorporated into plants grown from genetically altered seeds produced by Monsanto. The neonicotinoids are suspected to be the culprit in the mass die-off of bees in both Germany and Spain. In response to this research, the European Union has already proposed a ban on the seeds in question. Here in the United States, the leading bee research company was bought by Monsanto in 2012 after the company was first implicated in epidemic bee colony collapses, and little has been heard on the subject since.

This situation has left “ORGANIC FARMERS” scrambling to find new bee colonies for the pollination of many fruits and vegetables and could have the effect of raising prices on these foods in the near future.

  1. THIS COULD NOT BE MORE SERIOUS
    !!!!!! WE MUST KEEP THE PRESSURE OF DEMAND ON THIS ISSUE AND DO NOT BE FOOLED BY ALL THE DECEPTIVE PLOYS WHEN THEY ADDRESS THE ISSUE IN THE MEDIA!! THIS COULD NOT BE MORE SERIOUS!! OR DEMAND MORE OF OUR ATTENTION TO BRING MONSANTO AND COMPANY TO A SCREECHING, BURNING HALT!!!!!!

  2. Ruthie it’s not just honey that is at stake here. It’s all pollinated food & many forms of life including us.

    Bees are responsible for connecting Mother Nature together. If you can imagine a thread linking all that is natural in our world – it is the honeybee that is that thread. ✌

  3. This and last early spring ,honeybees have gathered pollen and I believe tried to build hives in many small openings around my home ,I don’t understand why this is happening, the poor little bees work so hard and eventually they are just gone ,I was told it was because they had no queen. Does anyone have any Ideas about what is going on??? No they are not carpenter bees….

  4. I want to say this in the nicest possible way…I don’t mean to be unkind; but if this page wants to be taken seriously as a news source, you should probably have your posts proofread by someone who is a little more polished in their grammar skills. ?

  5. We lost 6 out of 7 hives last fall. (ps- there is no apostrophe in bees)…gotta keep people from thinking the farmers are dumb! So sick of hearing about “dumb farmers” from the people at market

    • please do some research on the size of the honey bee cells …i read a study by some arizona beekeepers who discovered that in an effort to create a larger bee, thinking it will make more honey, some scientists enlarged the size of honey bee cells, and unwittingly made it easier for bee mites to enter the thorax of the developing bees and kill them…they created larger bees simply by the foundation anchor used in hives having larger spaces for the places the bees attach the comb wax…i know i;m doing a poor job of explaining this…but try to research it.

  6. Problem is….is that the genie is already out of the bottle…and as long as there’s profit to be made…they’ll keep going. The damage will get a LOT worse before it gets better 🙁
